In chalk pastel on paper, I create urban landscapes against tumultuous skies, depicting changing light and the ephemeral nature of attempting to capture a moment. 

DRAWINGS

Interdisciplinary sculptural work connected to an exploration of my series Ornament/Monument, marrying interests in drawing, artists books, and site specificity. 

INSTALLATION

Printmaking works on paper founded in traditional practices of intaglio, relief, serigraph, and stone lithography.

PRINTMEDIA

I believe in printing with vintage type, celebrating the process and context of letterpress printing as an imperfect, handmade medium that allows a message to  be seen, felt, and experienced. 

LETTERPRESS

 

The process of hand papermaking is fluid and imperfect, and in my process I use watermarking as a method to reveal and conceal text in narrative palimpsests. 

HANDMADE PAPER

Through the Glass, Towards Me: A Distillation 

Time based ephemeral sculpture, video projection, sound installation, artist's book. Part of a body of work exploring Memento Mori, ornament and monument, and the corporeal experience of time.
