"Miming is the cheesiest form of art. But... I have seen some really good mimes."
-Clark Richert

The Artist
I make collages by combining paper ephemera, found images, and my own photographic imagery and drawing. Inspired by the Mail Art Movement, I often employ an element of correspondence in my studio practice. Although I'm inspired by whatever materials I come across, there is always a feeling of searching or mapping in the work I produce. I was born in rural Breckenridge, MN. I studied photography at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, and finished my BFA at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design (RMCAD), graduating in 2013 from their photography and video art program.
