About
ABOUT
I create paintings, drawings, and illustrated books that visualize the experience of remembrance. I received an MFA in art from the University of Connecticut and a BA in studio art from Colorado College.

STATEMENT
A hazy scene floats up to the surface as I struggle to recall what happened. Details shift in and out of focus, and after many years, it is unclear what is real and what is misremembered. In my paintings and drawings, I recreate the experience of remembering something half-forgotten. I layer moments from my memory to tell ambiguous stories, but I change details, add fictional characters, and alter settings to visualize the mood I remember. The paintings become unreliable narrators as they blur memoir with fiction, and their translucent compositions are more akin to poetry than prose. Words and images interweave, and my writing is often the catalyst for new paintings or illustrated zines. As I write or draw scenes from the past, I close my eyes to remember. Behind closed eyelids, I’ve already started to forget.
