About

I am an interdisciplinary artist working in sound, composition, and conceptual photography. My work explores the construction of subjectivity as it relates to spatiality, time, and aurality, using the voice and imagery as tools to locate the body in time and space, positing the voice as a site of inscription and possibility. Through it, I explore the impact of the structures of hierarchy upon the experiencing body, while seeking options to expand and change culturally created subjectivities. My sound and performance work includes more than twenty years of composition, sound art, recording and performance in galleries, museums, and music festivals and venues.

I received my MFA in Art Practice from the School of Visual Arts in NYC in 2018, and my BA in Art History and Fine Art Photography from the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning at the University of Cincinnati in 2008, graduating magna cum laude. I live and work in NYC and Cincinnati.
