I first fell under the sway of contemporary art as an assembly of Louise Bourgeois eye benches was installed outside my dorm room at Williams College, and the visual arts and landscape remain at the core of my practice as a writer, educator, and editor. After an internship at the National Park Service and a stint at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., I moved west for graduate studies in art and architectural history at the University of Washington. Museum education has been my bread and butter, and I have worked as an art and environmental educator at the Seattle Art Museum and volunteered at the Henry Art Gallery. I currently teach critical and contextual studies to art, design, interior architecture, and film students at Cornish College of the Arts. My art criticism and essays have appeared in Art Nerd Seattle, ARCADE Magazine, Temporary Art Review, Critical Read, The Timberline Review, and River Teeth Journal’s Beautiful Things series, and my writing has been generously supported by residencies at Ragdale (Lake Forest, IL) and the Anderson Center (Red Wing, MN) and with an Art Writing Workshop Award from the International Art Critics Association/USA Section (AICA/USA) and the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program.
