There's a lot of people looking at me
2018
4'x4'x1.25"
Wood / Acrylic paint 
I used method of replication that printmakers often use to create images through stenciling. My images come from my hand drawings, cut outs on paper, sized up to proportion, then cut. I used this method of stenciling to acquire an accurate consistency. This allowed me to layer my images, adding depth to 2D wooded canvas. I enjoy the hand made quality of lines and their rhythm.

Untitled
2018
2'x2'x6"
Stuffed animals and latex paint

I am in a transitional period of my life where my parents are moving from my childhood home and I am moving from the state that I grew up in. In an attempt to conserve space, I've had to get rid of a lot of my childhood toys. In this piece, I ruined my own stuffed animals, putting them in a state where no child would want to play with them.

One too Many
2018
7"x5'x3'
Steel Metal

On an average day, 96 Americans are killed due to Gun Violence. 
62% of Firearm deaths in the U.S are suicides.
For every one person killed with guns, two more are injured.
Seven children and teens are killed with guns in the U.S on an average day. 

This piece is my response to the massive amounts of deaths due to guns. There have been too many deaths that could have been prevented if there were tighter gun control laws.

Allied Repulsion
2018
Plastic, oil, ink, food coloring, spray paint 
8' x 4' x 3"

An exploration of the concept of the chemical repulsion of two substances. Plays with ideas of biology and science as well as emotion and movement. Audience interaction can help define the meaning and purpose of the piece. Gravity takes a big part in the floor installation and positioning that caters to the liquids and their movement.

"Glass Marlin"

7 feet x 2.5 feet

metal, broken glass, paint

For this final sculpture I combined the elements of a trophy mounted fish with that of the ecological issue of pollution.  The shards of glass inside the belly of the marlin represent the dangerous effects that pollution has on sea life, while the bright blue and yellow colors and large scale of the fish represent the trophy element

Not Whole, Knot Hole

Spring 2018

Glass Bottles, Twine

This piece plays with the concept of strength.  On its own, glass is already a fragile, breakable material.  Through the physical act of sandblasting, the glass is thinned and cut to become as fragile as it can be while still mainting one form.  Through cutting the glass, the areas of empty space become more important than the glass itself. The holes in the glass are then mimicked through the holes in the knotted twine holding the bottles up.

Glow in the Dark Mushrooms
2018
Resin and Glowing powder
  
The installation Glow in the Dark Mushrooms is an extension of the squishy wall mushrooms installation. During the day the white mushrooms conform to their surroundings and do not stand strongly apart from the background. When the lights go off however they glow a vibrant blue and show their magic.

Dunes
Wood
4' x 2' x 4'






The piece represents the soft movement of a dune landscape. With small changes in elevation and variation in size, the wood shows a smooth flowing landscape. Mounted on the wall, a viewer is supposed to look straight on the piece as a aerial view of the landscape, however as they move around they will begin to see the changes in curves and shapes of the wood to represent the soft push and pull wind has on dune structures.

 Keyhole 
1 ft x 1.5 ft x 5 ft
transparent plastic, steel, acrylic paint
May 2018

a scaled down model of an ideal outdoor installation. ten panels that stand 8 ft tall, 4 ft wide and 4 ft apart. the viewer can peer through the keyhole and view the piece in 360 degrees as well as walk through each panel. ideally they would each stand alone planted in the ground rather than all connect on one base piece. 

inspired by iconic central park installation The Gates by Christo and Jean Claude and my newfound admiration for interactive outdoor installations. hopefully next year I will be able to make the full scale model I am visualizing

Man, Air and Water
2018
Clay
1’ 2” x 4’ x 4' 

Two elements that all living things need to survive. This piece shows a man breaking through the surface of one element as he gasps for the other.
