About me

I am currently attending Boston University where I study sculpture and printmaking.  Having grown up on Martha's Vineyard, and worked on a farm there for the past five summers has made nature into one of my biggest inspirations. Living in Boston has been a nice contrast to the natural world I have always lived in.  I like to play with the difference between organic and human-constructed landscapes and objects. 

Part of my process is walking.  I find inspiration while walking through the streets of Boston whether it is an interesting tree, or a decaying piece of trash. If it is small enough, I will take it back to my studio for a visual reference.
