Brooklyn, NY  – “I was born and raised in Seattle, WA. I moved to New York at age 17 to attend Barnard College, and completed a self-designed combined major in Behavioral Neuroscience and Philosophy in 2004. While in school, I also trained in the LeRoy Neiman Print Center at Columbia University, working with master printers on projects for artists, including artist Kiki Smith. When I finished my degree, I took leave of the Neiman Print Center, and become a studio assistant to Kiki Smith in New York, with whom I have worked since.
      In 2007, Christina Ray asked to represent me at her gallery and project space in New York, Glowlab (now called Christina Ray), and I have since held two solo exhibitions with the gallery. I have also been included in over 25 group shows since 2004, including at Cheim & Read (NY), International Print Center New York, and upcoming at Gowanus Studio Space (Brooklyn, NY). In 2009, I began a collaborative screenprinting company E for Effort with artist Rachel Ostrow, and we show and sell our wares with Artware Editions (NY). Earlier this year I was awarded a grant and studio residency in papermaking at the Women’s Studio Workshop (NY). I also began studying movement and performance with choreographer and performer Daria Fain and her project Prosodic Body. This upcoming summer I will participate in a thesis exhibition as the culmination of my graduate studies with the 3-year, low-residence, Bard (summer) MFA program.”
