About the Instructor
The landscapes of my home in Connecticut are important to me. When I was young, I went to the woods for seclusion and comfort. While I wandered through the forest, I discovered a passion for storytelling. Now that I no longer live in New England, I miss the familiar landscapes of home. As a way to foster my sentiment for nature, I write poetic narratives and create objects to illustrate natural landscapes. I combine my interests of classic Americana art and literature with brutalist architecture and modern furniture to create immersive installations. I primarily use concrete and hardwood to materially bridge the unnatural with the natural.
