I've been making pictures since 2006, but have told stories for as long as I can remember. I am interested in memory, nostalgia, play, and the intersection of the imaginary and the possible. My work explores humor, irony, and failure, and often comes about from a prolonged investigation that begins with play. My process is heavily informed by collecting, exploring, and manipulating materials. I also find a great deal of inspiration and momentum in teaching - the root of my practice as an art educator is discovery and play, and I believe strongly in my role as a facilitator of ideas over products.
I currently live and teach in Abingdon, Virginia.
