I prefer to work in many different mediums, but those I pick up are very tactile. My creative process is one of involvement, building connections and creating relationships with individuals whose stories and memories inform the way I approach creating and discussing the subtleties and bluntness of memory. In 2005 I received my BFA in Sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Recently in 09 I earned my Master's in Arts Management from the Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University. I have been exhibiting my work across the Mid Atlantic region since 2003.
As well as working to exhibit my own work I run a gallery out of Braddock, PA: UnSmoke Systems Artspace. We have been hosting exhibitions since 2008. Our exhibitions range from partnerships with major museums and established Pittsburgh organizations to bringing in artists from outside. We are an experimental space where we encourage artists to take risks and try new ideas. To see what we're up to now check out our website at unsmokeartspace.com.
