I received a BA from Wesleyan University in 2006 and an MFA from Massachusetts College of Art in 2012. I live and work in Arlington, MA, making art and doing freelance User Interface Design.

Each drawing process I use stems from a desire to touch, mark, and materialize fleeting moments of beauty. During the winter months, I seem to generate the most work, savoring the brief and infrequent sunlight. Most recently, a stack of photocopies has been accumulating on my desk. These pieces are from my experiences postpartum and at home with my young child.

The photocopier has allowed me to make images quickly and in a way that invites accidents and surprises. I arrange and push materials around, often while holding my daughter in the other arm, or I let her put her feet on the surface of the flatbed. The process feels like the mechanics of drawing, yet, hovering over the photocopier, I have shifted my orientation to the image. Before I was the observer, but now I am part of the subject.
