Born and raised in Connecticut, I am currently a resident artist at the Guilford Art Center in Guilford Connecticut. I studied painting and ceramics at the Hartford Art School, University of Hartford, receiving my BFA in May of 2017.
I work both in clay, mainly functional work, and mixed media paintings.
The ceramic work I create links composite forms with color and decoration, resulting in whimsical, functional work. Through my medium I am able to focus on texture and color as a means to further develop my aesthetic. As both a ceramicist and a painter, I enjoy creating color relationships with both glaze and underglaze.
my paintings make connections between opposing aesthetics. My paintings use figures and snapshots from my life that hold importance, yet the manner in which they are painted create uncertainty. With overlap, and line work I am able to create a hierarchy of importance, while breaking the generalized rules set onto figure painting, and abstraction.
