B.A., Wellesley College ; M.F.A., University of Connecticut
Visiting Lecturer in Art
Visual artist working primarily in printmaking.
I will be teaching printmaking and drawing at Wellesley in the 2019-20 academic year. Classes will include Drawing I, Alternative Print Methods: The Graphic Impulse, and Print Methods: Lithography/Screenprint. In my own work, text, images, and print processes combine to create and reflect on meaning. Right now, we receive news and information at a rate faster than we are able to process. Political opinion simmers below the surface of everyday conversations. My work is how I filter the polarization of opinion and fact prompted by current events, historical documents, national identity, and weather—both a symbol of change and its real harbinger. The act of making resists the act of skimming, insisting that I absorb and respond to what is before me; that I be informed and stay informed. In many ways, my work is about pause. It is an archive of my experience of this current moment, a glimpse at one chapter of an unfolding story that is in constant flux.
