Fine Artist and Curator

I am a Connecticut born artist and curator.

I connect humans to the natural world through painting and collage, often linking queer identities to flora and fauna. I paint murals supplemented with installation art, transforming white-cube galleries into new environments. Recently, I have been exploring the creation of phone-interactive wall paintings that "sing" to viewers through the use of mobile phones.

A significant part of my practice is collage based. I am obsessed with repurposing trash and recyclables, using found objects to explore irl collage in ways that mimic photoshop and the visual language of memes.
