I was born in 1994 in Denver, Colorado and have lived in both Alaska and Michigan. I received my BA in mathematics and studio art from Kalamazoo College in 2015 after finishing terms in both New York City and Rome. I identify as both a visual artist and a writer, and this fall I hope to begin an MFA program in creative nonfiction.
Although other mediums play a part in my work, my primary form of art is digital photography and manipulation. I interned for Polaroid photographer Miranda Lichtenstein in New York where I learned how to digitize film and prepare a spread for an art magazine. I also worked with installation artists Kristin Jones and Andrew Ginzel to learn how socially engaged artwork can change lives.
My work focuses on portraiture and capturing the nuances of the human spirit. I put myself both behind and in front of the camera, and I love to use digital manipulation to bring to light my perception of the world.
