Fort Collins, Colorado, United States

I am a mixed media artist currently residing in Fort Collins, Colorado. I studied art at Harvard University, concentrating my studies in sculpture. Through the use of discarded materials, I enjoy creating contemporary artifacts, encouraging the viewer to see the beauty in the seemingly mundane. I collect cans wherever I go, like a treasure hunt for my palette. Inspired by ancient mosaics and other pixelated media, I appreciate the meditative processes of dismantling, sorting, and sewing can fragments onto the burlap, watching the images evolve. The process of creating these mosaics is slow, methodical, and meditative, allowing me to get more closely acquainted with my subject.
