About the Artist:
I am a mixed media artist (they/them), working primarily in drawing and installation, with a history degree from the University of Virginia. Raised in a military family, I lived across the US, eventually settling for a decade in New York City before moving to Berlin in 2019. Spending those formative years roaming Cold War-Era Air Force Bases continues to resonate throughout my work, as does the environment of every place I lived, particularly that of the Chesapeake Bay.
My work is preoccupied with self-contained worlds and the recreation of familiar patterns independent of scale— the vastness of a solitary room, a monumental civilization in a pinch of earth.
I have exhibited across the US and Europe since 2007, including solo shows in Los Angeles, New York, and Portland, Oregon. My work has been published in several anthologies and a drawing monograph is available from Von Zos.
