A current graduate student at the University of Michigan, I graduated with my BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design with a focus in glass and print media. My current practice looks at the building blocks of communication. To communicate means to ‘open into one another’ and my recent works have set out to question what that means exactly. What is being opened, and into what? Through performances, sculptures and installations I create an interplay between body, gesture and breath that tug at the balance of what it means to relate to one another.
