With a degree in Art History from Tufts University and a graduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Architecture, I have professionally focused in practicing architecture. My interest in investigating the boundaries of spatial relationships has led me to fine art as a means of fulfilling this exploration.
Through my drawings, I investigate the ambiguity of space. Whether inspired by built form or natural context, my art is constructed of an armature of light. Light, or what looks like atmosphere or fog, is engaged in either defining space or dematerializing the landscape or architectural elements depicted. This treatment of light, combined with an unclear relationship of the viewer’s place in relation to the ground plane, creates a spatial disconnect with an ambiguity of depth and motion.
In the last six years, I have exhibited in four separate museum shows, including the Tchoban Foundation Museum of Architectural Drawing in Berlin, the Springfield Museum of Art, and twice at the Brattleboro Museum of Art. I also had my third solo exhibit at Gurari Collections in Boston and was scheduled for my fourth solo show this year. I was also invited back to Berlin in 2017 for an exhibit at the Architektur Galerie Berlin. Finally, I participated in a show at The Building Centre in London, and had a two person exhibit with Michael Reedy at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco titled “Ghosts and Shadows.” Other upcoming shows include the 9th Annual Supersonic Invitational at RECESS in San Francisco opening October 3rd, and a solo show at Galerie TscharT in Leipzig, Germany in the fall of next year.
My drawings are in private and public collections, including the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, the Smith College Museum of Art, the Tchoban Foundation Museum and MGM Resorts International. My drawings have been written about in American Art Collector, Artscope Magazine, Design New England, Preview Magazine, CUBE Berlin, and Bauwelt Magazine.
