I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado and spent summers working in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. I will graduate from RISD in May of 2020 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.
