I am a historian and maker of things.


My academic research and artistic practice tend to inform and inspire each other. While transparent watercolor tends to be my go-to medium, I enjoy learning about and working with different kinds of materials. Plants have been a favorite subject of mine, but I am also fascinated by fauna (especially whales), architectural elements, textiles, and many other things.


This site showcases my creative projects. For more on my research and academic work, please visit the main site

Please send an email to if you would like to contact me for questions, commissions, and/or collaborations.
