Artist Statement: I’m a multimedia artist based in Madison, Wisconsin.
My designs begin as sketches from my imagination that I develop into layered technical drawings. I transform these into three dimensional shapes using a laser cutter at The Bodgery, a Madison-based makerspace.

After years of focusing on writing (Isthmus) and music (I sing and play trumpet in VO5 and Loving Cup), the pandemic has brought me back to one of my first loves: visual art. I love to paint scenes from my immediate neighborhood, including Starkweather Creek. I also find inspiration from my friends and neighbors' photos. I have never looked at the sky as much... [ more ]
