It's Warmer Inside
36x24 | Oil Paint, Mixed Media
This is a multimedia experiment on wood. This work expresses my uneasiness regarding the COVID 19 pandemic, and was created as the crisis was initially unfolding.
n/a | Screenprint, Mixed Media
My BFA grad piece. This is an installation made by temporarily gluing screenprints on washi to a wall using methylcellulose.
This piece is a response to my adult ADHD diagnosis, but it is also about the butterfly effect, a phenomenon about how every little thing you do in your present or past may have effected your future in ways you will never realize.

Using a combination of photographic copper etching and letterpress, I tell a story about an experience with a calf I had at my family farm.
22x30 | Oil Stick
2018. This piece, made with oil sticks, imagines the parts of the life of a steer who was raised to be killed for meat, calling attention to a cognitive dissonance that make most in society uncomfortable.
22x30 | Mixed Media
Participation in a rural 4-H "Beef Club" played a big part in my thinking that, although I loved cattle and always saw them as individuals who deserve their own life, it was okay to take that away from them.
For 5 years, I would get to know a steer for almost 6 months, loving them as if they were my pet, before being required to sell them to the highest bidder and sign off on their slaughter. Imagine if you did this with dogs?
22x30 | Oil Stick, Oil Pastel
2018. One of my first works about animal agriculture.
5x7 | Screenprint
Using a photo I took on a 5 AM adventure in Kyoto, Japan, I use this print to talk about sonder, self soothing, and learning to be happy on my own.
