STATEMENT

As humans we use paper to communicate ideas, feelings, and information, both personal and professional. We let these fragile reams become vessels for our memory and our experience on earth. I recognize that there is ritual in the way we regard and eventually discard these once pivotal record keepers.

I am primarily interested in a formal manipulation of shape and color. The shapes I create both through collage and sculpture are intended to conjure up ideas in the viewer about what their original state, or purpose might have been while simultaneously invoking a fondness for their experience with them as new beings. They have become abstract totems and snapshots of my own memory and the remains of our collective paper trail. 


BIO

I am a mixed media artist who was raised in Massachusetts. After completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art from Montserrat College of Art in 2014, I moved to Boston. Since then I have been focused on generating work and participating in some local exhibitions. My work is a blend of pocket sized collages and sculptures.
