Ecoprints on Arnhem, Anthotypes on Arnhem 
As the sun goes down in my backyard the shadows casted on the house slowly flow up the wall allowing light to catch the gardenia plant.

The Dance
Apple Leaf Ecoprints, Linocut Hands on Arnhem, Fishing Line
This printstallation was important to me to create in 2020 because it allowed for a calm interaction with the public. It creates a space for visual relaxation and elemental appreciation. As the piece dances in the wind, the forms have a light and airy quality that is hard to find in the public world today. By taking a minute to forget about the parameters of reality and by paying close attention to a small moment maybe we can feel the release of pressure on the natural and mortal spirit.

“Embodied Light”
In this series of Anthotype prints I am exploring the body’s innate expressiveness and beauty. These images came about during the funeral burial of my beloved grandfather, the mystery and wondering of where the soul goes when it leaves the body, and deep gratitude for the opportunity to be in a human body during this time of transformation on our planet.

“Let Them Eat Rats”
Linocut on Arnheim, digital kozo, and cardstock
A print installation focused on visually confronting America’s wealth gap. The work forces a conversation about class through the juxtaposition of these two opposing aesthetics. It broadcasts the opulence and excess of the upper class alongside the cruel conditions they create for the working class.
