Artist Statement

I am an interdisciplinary artist using performance, video, and sculpture. I create art that investigates how place creates and affects identity. Windows with cracking paint appear in works about Ohio, interconnected pathways are navigated by performers for work made in Michigan, the sun shines on repeat for video and neon signs in Arizona. As an artist the place I call home is the central beacon of all my work. My daily movement practice is interwoven with studio work to translate somatic knowledge to a more permanent form. In this way the projects I pursue define how I approach my life, cultivating daily practices that connect the brain and body.

My interests and skills encompass metal fabrication, video editing, as well as aerial and tightwire dancing. I am enthralled with the ways that sculpture can provide a tactile and immersive situation, while the inherent narrative and ephemeral quality of video harness the time-based essence of experience.
