I AM A DESIGNER AND RESEARCHER WHO ENJOYS CONSIDERING WHAT CAN BE LEARNED FROM CHANGING THE METAPHORS AND FRAMEWORKS USED TO DISCUSS GOVERNMENT STRUCTURES.

 

I studied Graphic Design and Textile Design at Rhode Island School of Design, graduating with a BFA in 2018. See my CV here.

 

GRAPHIC DESIGN taught me how to visualize complex information.

TEXTILE DESIGN taught me how to analyze patterns, and identify when and where a pattern or system is not working.

 

And now, six fun facts for you.

In 2018, I also had the honor of being RISD's senior class speaker!

I'm fascinated by systems, language, and bureaucracy.

I want my work to propose new ways for artists work in/with government (like Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Tania Brugeura, the Center for Urban Pedagogy, etc).

While my work ranges from sewing to weaving, drawing, researching, and collaging; I think about everything I make as a textile.

In my spare time I love sewing clothes for myself and other people (especially jumpsuits).

My favorite coloring tool is a crayon, ideally dandelion yellow, a color Crayola sadly discontinued in 2017.
