NEW AND FEATURED WORK
fracture lines series
'Fracture lines' is my current mixed-media series. I would consider it highly experimental, but with a common theme and aesthetic running throughout. Through the process of ripping paper, shredding fabric, harvesting words, layering paint, and other media, I seek an end result that organically becomes a composition that urges reconciliation with nature, the raw edges, and soft moments of humanity, and our primitive selves.
The term 'fracture', for me, brings to mind a breaking apart of something that was once cohesive. In current times, with fractures being exposed in so many places, I feel like I can make cohesive the pieces of the world around me, both natural and "unnatural", as I work through each composition.

Maine as place through illustrative cartography
What started out as a gift for friends has grown into a passion for creating these hand-illustrated maps. The combination of local wildlife, geographic features, and the human connections to each place is a part of the driving force behind these one-of-a-kind maps. I would truly enjoy communicating with anyone interested in commissioning one of these unique, beautiful maps, in order to hear your stories about a beloved place.
