I am an artist and craftsperson currently creating woven visualizations of environmental and human rights statistics. As an artist and an educator, I value teaching as much as I appreciate creating work. I earned a BFA in Crafts, a BA in Art Education, and a National Board Certification for teaching art.  I have had the privilege to teach art to students who were incarcerated and on probation, and I am also grateful for my opportunities to teach courses at The Crucible and Penland School of Crafts. I have earned various scholarships and grants, including a Lenore G. Tawney Fiber Scholarship and the Personal Development Grant from the Surface Design Association. I enjoyed completing artist residencies and research at the Icelandic Textile Center [Textílsetur Íslands], The Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences, The Association of Icelandic Visual Arts [SÍM], Penland School of Crafts [Winter Residencies], Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts [Pentaculum], and soon The Arctic Circle.
