Country: United States
I am an artist working in encaustic and found material. I work with up-cycled material to give a second life to the discarded and to create more environmental value. In turn, these materials help add texture to my work and create distorted grids, both key elements to my aesthetic. I have also begun to curate environmental exhibitions. This year I curated Art for Environmental and Climate Justice on Artsy and in 2020 I curated an exhibition for Art Gowanus ArtWalk on Atlantic, UPCYCLING: Transforming the Discarded into Art. This summer, my work will be featured at The Other Art Fair in Brooklyn, presented by Saatchi Art. I have been accepted to the Chateau d'Orquevaux Artist Residency, in Orquevaux, France, for 2021-2022 and was awarded The Denis Diderot A-i-R Grant. My work has been shown in galleries throughout New York and Connecticut and is part of private collections across the country. I work and live in Brooklyn.
