About

My pieces are combinations of snips of paper against rich backgrounds to create something entirely new--and sometimes reminiscent of something old.

Hello! I’ve been creating mixed media collages in one way or another for as long as I can remember. I’m interested in how it’s possible to take snips of paper from different places and arrange them into something new. It feels like a metaphor for what we do all the time in life--assembling our different thoughts and feelings and experiences into the life we create every day.

My undergraduate degree is from Harvard, where I majored in Medieval History and Literature, mostly because I was obsessed with the Unicorn Tapestries at the Cloisters. While my major has ended up being exactly as useful as I had expected, my collages have given me a new outlet to explore medieval tapestry. Many of my collages borrow subject matter, color scheme, and even the idea of weaving from these tapestries. My interest in fairy tales, childhood innocence, time, and the juxtaposition of reality and fantasy also find their way into my work.

Thank you for visiting my shop! Please reach out with any questions you may have. Enjoy!
