I was born in Grinnell, Iowa. I received  a BA from Upper Iowa University,  a MA from the University of Iowa, and MFA from Minneapolis Collage of Art and Design. Currently I call Albuquerque, New Mexico home.  I am pursuing several art-related projects. My work, which is shown extensively in the U.S. and internationally, is about memories–tragic, humorous, and everything inbetween. I experiment with ironic and often unrecognizable imagery. My work is an investigation of the unexpected associations that are created by combining fragmented materials through collage. If you want to collaborate on a project, or think my work will fit into an exhibition, or just want to say hello, feel free to contact me at [email protected]
