I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado and spent summers working in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. I graduated in May of 2020 from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Textiles and a minor in Art History.
My work aims to focus on the tension between the positive impacts nature and our relationship with it brings and the inherent harm we have on this environment. Using a visual language drawn from natural environments along with research and material experimentation. I hope to create a harmony between my own creative expression, the natural environments which inspire me, and a sustainable means of production. I aim to express and draw attention to the intricacy and beauty that exists within nature while simultaneously drawing attention to the pressing issues of sustainability and conservation.
I recently finished a project with Draper Knitting Company in Canton, Massachusetts documenting their processes and procedures from bales of fiber to finished yardage. Currently, I am working on research relating to wool waste through the Fibershed Wool Waste Working Group and continuing in my own artistic explorations with a focus on place, color, material, and sustainability. (Also doing some Special Education work on the side)
