I am a sculptress from Iowa City, IA where I received my BFA in Sculpture from the University of Iowa and spent my younger years on a farm surrounded by dirt, cows, corn and rust. Since then, I’ve lived and exhibited throughout Iceland, participated in numerous residencies, worked at sculpture parks and galleries, and was most recently awarded the Dean’s Fellowship to begin graduate school at the University of Maryland.
Currently, my work parallels society’s abuse of ecology with man’s mistreatment of women; an ecofeminist epic in the age of the Anthropocene. Facets of my childhood on an Iowa farm inform how I embody scale, movement, insemination, and renewal- agricultural detritus being my material of choice. I use sculptural assemblage and installation as platforms to abstract, interpolate, and find a rediscovered relevance within the refuse.
