Occupation: Self-employed mixed media artist, from wearable art to room-sized installations

Education: Bachelor's degree in fine arts, Western Michigan University; Alchimia School of Contemporary Jewellery, Florence, Italy; Penland School of Crafts, Bakersville, N.C.; master's degree in fine arts in fibers, Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, Ga.

Quote: “My work right now is all about nature and natural processes and their ability to overcome the man-made, so by the end of my residency, the greens and browns will really take over the space. Decay and disrepair are beautiful. Pittsburgh is a perfect example of that.”
