Learn more about the artist : 

 

I am currently residing in Durham, North Carolina, obtaining my Master of Fine Arts at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Most recently I attained my Bachelor of Art Education, and Bachelor of Fine Arts at Minnesota State University Moorhead.

 

I am affiliated with the Underbrush Gallery, ND and have participated in numerous exhibitions around the state and region. I am currently a member of the North Dakota Museum of Art, Grand Forks, ND, Fargo Moorhead Visual Artists, Fargo, ND, Ecce Gallery, Fargo, ND, Durham Arts Guild, Durham, NC and the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, NC.

 

Statement:

 

I have always had the intention of working deliberately with the natural landscapes I inhabit, places I have been and have grown a relationship to. I was raised in the Midwest, which impacted the story of my work and how I observed my surroundings. I have always been influenced and motivated by where I am from, influences consisting of childhood memories of barefoot escapades and scraped up knees, where I made the evergreens my jungle gym – to solo travels across countries, taking in the landscapes that are unfamiliar to what I’ve never known.

 

I am compelled by the unattainable and the impulse to explore, by exploring these temporal landscapes, I pose the question of what it means to be connected yet disconnected within the same place.

 

My art practice is currently a response of emotional content. Feelings of isolation, solitude, and quiet pervade throughout my work. I am not concerned on solely composing a pretty picture. Author Rebecca Solnit’s curiosity of relationships to places provoked this response, delving into her question on finding these things- these feelings, that are in some ways about extending the boundaries of the self into unknown territory.
