I am a practicing artist and graphic designer who currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. My work focuses on a translation between digital and analog processes. I am interested in combining the handmade with the machine by using industrial and mass produced materials, and by applying both hand painted and digitally rendered patterns. I want to create a conversation about the state of living in an intersection of digital and analog realities, in which virtual and physical experiences exist beside one another. Despite the increasing amount of time we spend in front of digital screens and how vital technology is to our every day lives, a desire for the tangible persists. This desire for the tangible serves as the basis of inquiry for my work.
I received an MFA (2D Design) from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2016 and a BA (Anthropology, Studio Art) from Skidmore College in 2007. Additionally, I have studied art and design at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon, ISIA Urbino Werkplaats Typografie Summer School in Urbino, Italy, and the School for International Training in Apia, Samoa.
