I am a painter and object maker currently living and working out of the Midwest. I was born in Erie, PA and in our yard there was a cut off sewage pipe that my sisters and I pretended was a witch’s brew. As a kid I just walked around, mostly playing in puddles behind dumpsters and dropping silly putty into holes on my porch. Then, I got a little older and worked on sweaty roofs and in muddy basements as a laborer. Now I am here, in another place as dirty as my birth. I push things together with my hands and try to process some of the world as it comes.
