Exploring Pattern


I’ve been making work about diabetes for a few years now and I’ve explored several different materials and approaches along the way. During this time, I’ve encountered several challenges. Aside from dealing with the occasional emotional obstacles, I’ve struggled to guide this body of work in one direction and instead have branched off what feels like endlessly. It’s a complicated feeling because I do want to explore this subject as thoroughly as I can, but doing so also leads me to feel like I’m starting lots of different things and not spending enough time on any of them because I keep moving on to something else. I don’t know. It’s hard to explain.

Fall Update

Last week I had my first studio visit with my mentor for school and it was so helpful. In Chicago I was able to get feedback from other artists at pretty much any moment so it was sort of a difficult transition to go from that to having little access to feedback again. My mentor gave me a few assignments and some questions to ponder over and I’m very excited to get started.

Last week I also started teaching an after school art class for Roanoke City. This means I will be teaching five to six different classes every week for a couple months. The kids were great and I’m looking forward to working with them every week :]

I’m working on so many different things right now. Here are two!


More sugar painting


A special self-portrait…

I’m also working on a commissioned painting, some show submissions, and a secret side project! More info soon. Thanks for reading!


Experimental Summer

I wish I had the time to write a post reviewing every single day of my residency, because that’s how much content I have to share. Unfortunately my schedule is completely packed, but I at least want to share some images of things I’m working on! Also, if you can’t tell from the photos, I’m experimenting a LOT. A teeny bit of information: I’ve been working with sugar, medicine, and obviously the colors red and pink. Thanks for visiting!
