I have been on the faculty of Beloit College since 2002 teaching all levels of drawing and printmaking. I teach foundations, drawing, and printmaking, which includes media like etching, relief printing, and screen printing. I am also a practicing artist, and I exhibit my work regularly in national and international venues. I earned an MFA in printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I worked with storied print artists such as Frances Myers and Warrington Colescott.

My work has since evolved to focus mainly on drawing, usually with commonplace media such as graphite pencils and ballpoint pen. I make drawings and works on paper that evoke the eeriness of everyday experiences and have been described as “clairvoyant,” often depicting familiar spaces charged with a sense of dark presence, or other instances where planes of existence clash: the future sending messages to the past, memory intruding upon the present, or the subconscious bleeding into consciousness.

I have exhibited nationally, including solo exhibitions at the James Watrous Gallery of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters, at the Alcove Gallery in New York, and in numerous national and international group shows.
