I received a BA in Art and Linguistics from Swarthmore College in 2006. I’ve lived in West Philadelphia since 2007. My work has been influenced by ink painting, graphic street art, and color field painting. I have in the last six years focused on abstracting memories and investigating the ways that time changes them.
I paint with ink and acrylic on wood and boards prepared with gesso. The work is process-driven and involves layering paint repeatedly and removing the resulting washes and imagery with sandpaper and liquid to create evocative atmospheres.
