Artist Statement

I am a multimedia artist working in the mediums of watercolor, acrylic, cyanotype, metal, and modern dance. I find that no matter the medium, my love of the color blue, movement, and nature always finds a home in each work. The way that I work with my materials is greatly informed by my history and current practice as a dance artist - each piece takes on movement and a life of its own. When I am not strictly choreographing a dance piece, I am choreographing my materials in space.

My work, regardless of medium, is greatly influenced by the author Maggie Nelson:

That this blue exists makes my life a remarkable one, just to have seen it. To have seen such beautiful things. To find oneself placed in their midst. - Bluets, Maggie Nelson
