My art is about the people we carry with us.

There is a cumulative intensity to the gesture of marks I carve as I explore tenderness, the temporary, and generational space between people. Through figurative woodcut, installation and generative intervention I use the lens of my upbringing as a Jew in rural Alaska to consider place, displacement, diaspora and adaptation.

Working either monumentally or intimately small, my practice is connected to the weight of the past, human migration and the effervescent exhaustion of everyday love.
