I'm currently a design strategist at a medium-sized design consultancy in Boston where all of my projects are unfortunately under NDA, so what you see on this website is slightly dated for now. I received my MFA in 2016 from Art Center College of Design’s Media Design Practices program. Before graduate school I worked on green infrastructure (green roofs, street-level rain capture), studied human geography at Dartmouth, and spent 18 years in rural Vermont.
As a part of my MFA thesis work on race and political consciousness, these candles invite critical reflection on the solutionist values of empathy, charity, and diversity.
Prayer candles, altars, effgies, talismans; objects have always been an instinctive strategy for making abstract ideas real.
