I am an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Philadelphia, PA. My sculpture and animations explore how we internalize and experience landscape, memory, and wonder. I teach Fine Art courses in the School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania and at the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. I received my MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and BA from Vassar College.
My animation work has screened at the Japan Media Arts Festival in Tokyo, Japan, Animation Block Party in Brooklyn, NY, Vox Populi in Philadelphia, PA, and the Peephole Cinema in San Francisco. My sculptures have been exhibited at the Vancouver Art Gallery in Vancouver, BC, The Chemical Heritage Foundation Museum, Philadelphia, PA, the Arlington Art Center in Arlington, VA and Julius Caesar Gallery in Chicago, IL. Awards include the Juror’s Prize at the 25th Annual McNeese Works on Paper Juried Exhibition in 2012, a Fulbright Grant in 2008 to study Chinese traditional landscape painting in Hangzhou, China, and the Weitzel Barber Art Travel Prize in 2006 to study Buddhist sculpture practices in Western China. In 2014 I was an Artist-in-Residence at the Hacktory in Philadelphia, and in 2018 I was a Visual Arts fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. My studio is located at the Queen Memorial Work Studios in Grays Ferry.
I am currently the Mellon Artist-in-Residence at the Penn Program in the Environmental Humanities.
