Exhibits
In 2021, I showcased short films from ArtSpace Artists in the Corner Window exhibit at UFO Gallery, Maynard, providing a unique platform for local talent. The following year, 2022, NYC video artist Stephanie Beattie presented "Web Portal," a site-specific durational video exhibit in Naylor Court, Maynard, MA. This exhibit explored the architecture of information, captivating viewers with its innovative approach.
In 2023, I designed an immersive environment based on architectural renderings for a proposed new park in a small mill town. In collaboration with the architect, this exhibit featured a public charrette that allowed visitors to "experience" walking through Triangle Park.

These interactive experiences engage the community in the developmental process and enhance the dialogue between artists, architects, and the public, fostering richer community feedback on public spaces.

ANNOUNCING
ARTMAIL WORKSHOPS 2024


ArtMail Workshops: Cultivating Creativity, Connection, and Mental Well-being

Since 2007, I have practiced ArtMail, creating and sending over 3,000 handmade postcards to friends, family, and patrons. This evolved into a subscription service, producing an average of 25 original pieces each month for over a decade. ArtMail has been a cornerstone of my creative journey, fostering a unique, tangible connection with my community. Now, I am excited to resume and share this enriching experience through a series of workshops focused on the mental health benefits of ArtMail.



American Bones

︎︎︎ 2011-2018
︎︎︎ Successful Kickstarter grant 6k
︎︎︎ 5 month roadtrip three residencies/retreats

Exploring the infrastructure of America's cultural narrative. Distilling aspects of iconic identity and creating a visual commentary of the mashup that forms the bone structure of America. From architecture, landscapes, and portraits to the commoditization of memory that is the souvenir, the work explores the essential forces that form identity.


Compost Corral, Pandemic Project
︎︎︎ May 2020-Sept-2020
︎︎︎The Compost Corral is a land-based art project; I transformed an ordinary compost pile into a visual and environmental statement. This involved relocating a substantial pile of dirt, trash, and organic material, utilizing only found objects like stakes, tarps, and fencing materials. Central to this transformation was the cutting down of invasive Chinese ivy, which, despite its ecological impact, possesses a thick, ornately twisted, and pliable, making it a beautiful natural material to build the corral.
Once removed from surrounding trees where it hindered growth, the ivy was repurposed and woven together to construct a pen encircling the compost pile. This artistic intervention served a practical purpose and redefined the aesthetics of composting, turning a typically overlooked process into a point of communal and environmental interest
