Having grown up in the heart of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, I have always been inspired by the natural word. My art not only communicates this love of the environment and ecology, but explores material and breaks boundaries of cultural association. Installation art is a way to get lost in layers of understanding systems, the environment, and our surroundings. I love re-purposing and re-contextualizing common and familiar objects into new systems with new functions. Site specific installations are made of industrial and mass produced materials including coffee filters, wood, PVC pipes, bike tubes, fibers, tape, agricultural plastic, egg cartons, and many more. The art is based on repetition, pattern, and transformation of material and space. I received a BFA in Sculpture at Colorado State University, in Colorado in 2013. Since then, I’ve been farming, creating, and teaching a life of art. I currently reside in Colorado.
