As an artist and all-around creative with deep roots in communication, my interests are many. In my artwork, I use a variety of mediums including oil & acrylic paints, charcoal, watercolor, and graphite to explore storytelling and societal qualms — I am particularly interested in the push and pull of imagination and reality, the labor of curation, and the act of consumerism. I'm currently working on a bunch of oil paintings of still life arrangements that I photograph on my kitchen floor.
My artwork has been featured in the Cream of the Crop Artist's Gallery at MN State Fair, NEMAA's ART-A-WHIRL, and the Tower Arts & Literary Magazine, and the work of the middle school students whom I teach has been exhibited at the Wauwatosa Public Library and featured in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards & the Wisconsin State Fair. My arts-focused writing has been published in In Studio Magazine, the Weisman Art Museum, the Minnesota Daily, and throughout a variety of College of Liberal Arts departments at the University of Minnesota.
