I grew up in Virginia making art with my mother, a printmaker, who gifted me her Kodak Instamatic x-35 when she upgraded to a Nikon. We read a lot and made up a lot of stories. And I have been doing that ever since.
I was trained in ceramics, photography, fashion design - patternmaking & sewing, writing, and video editing in classes throughout my youth and into college at Virginia Tech, University of Colorado - Boulder, NYU and beyond. I apprenticed for two years with a home contractor, learning how to repair and renovate houses. Most of my working years have been spent doing that, working in a ceramics production studio, or being a nanny. Kids are pretty great - they're fun to play with, make art with, and they keep it real.
I recently moved from NYC to Detroit to renovate houses and make more art. Thanks for stopping by!
