About the artist
Bio: I am a visual artist who draws largely upon traditional book arts methods in tandem with modern materials and aesthetics to explore different facets of personal and collective identity. I also draw upon my other professional identities (curator, food historian, academic, teacher, etc.) and experiences (travel, growing and preserving my own food, etc.) to help me articulate this work.
