Statement

I am a visual artist working at the intersection of printmaking, photography, and urban commentary. Through long-term engagement with specific cities such as Berlin, Germany; Budapest, Hungary; or Venice, Italy; I examine printed posters pasted on city walls, and the anonymous passers-by who might rip, tear, over-paste, scribble, or otherwise retaliate against them. I interact with these poster surfaces by methodically photographing specific sites, collecting poster detritus and other ephemera, and deconstructing them in my studio.

I have a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin, and was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to Hungary in 2013/2014. I am now living and working between Madison, Wisconsin, and Berlin, Germany.
