By exploring synesthesia and chronic pain, I create imagery that expresses the reconsideration of individual perception. You'll see work here made from both my own synesthetic experience and inspired by that of others, investigating nontraditional sensorial responses to sound, written language, time, emotions, pain, color, and concepts. The DIS/CLOSURE page showcases a collaboration with Ellen Rogers, in which we visualized, catalogued, and reflected on our struggles with chronic illness and pain. I also make some amusing things, because, that's who I am.
I had an amazing time living in a southern Icelandic village for seven weeks this summer, as I completed an artist residency at Gullkistan Center for Creativity! To help bolster my funding for future residencies, including one already awarded to me in 2017 by the Hafnarborg Centre of Culture and Fine Art, I'm selling some copies of my books and prints, as well as cards and phone cases.
