CV/Bio

I’m influenced by experiences that are quiet, personal, fragile, and beautifully imperfect. Documentation or research related to sensory effects and rituals, religious and otherwise, are a part of my work. Art mediums and influences often include perfume/smells, pins, original poems or poem fragments, paper, plants-often the Easter Lily, black thread, and calendars. These materials—lightweight, translucent, and sometimes repurposed—allude to vulnerability. To me, a whisper is powerful.
