I am a designer researcher who enjoys considering what can be learned from 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.
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.
My favorite coloring tool is a crayon, ideally dandelion yellow, a color Crayola sadly discontinued in 2017.
