I studied art at University of Puget Sound and University of Oregon and proceeded to continue my research on speculation and daydreaming in artist residencies in Norway, Portugal, and Texas. My search for access to the ocean has been pervasive and I moved to Seattle in 2014 to be near the ocean and continue my daydreams of venturing out to sea. My work has been shown in Seattle at Gallery 4Culture, Center on Contemporary Art, Shunpike’s Storefront Project, Recology Cleanscape’s Artist in Resident Program, and next year at Method Gallery. I have taught various sculpture, ceramics, and drawings courses at University of Oregon, The University of Texas at El Paso, and Edmonds Community College and was recently selected as the ArtBridge Fellow at Pratt Fine Arts Center. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like a voyage around the world aboard a ship in search of sea monsters is going to present itself anytime soon, so I find solace in my practice of speculative mapping by building models of ships, whales, and the various accoutrements of daydreaming.
