The daughter of a taxidermist and decoy carver she was subject to object making at a young age. Growing up in Vermont has left a lasting impression and fuels the work produced today. Her installations contain video, found objects and constructions of roadside detritus that are a conceptualization of the housing crash and the myth of the American Dream. Her Installations have been exhibited, to name a few at the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids MI; Dairy Center for the Arts, Boulder, CO; Terminal 136, UTSA San Antonio, TX. She has also been invited to be a resident at Hambidge Center for the Arts, and the Vermont Studio Center.
