ABOUT

I am an artist, writer, carpenter and arts organizer currently based between Alvin, TX, and Philadelphia, PA.

My practice investigates my itinerant state as it relates to land ecology, and is informed by and intertwined with my work as a carpenter and land steward. The intersection between construction, land(scape), utility, and people’s desire to both care for and control their spaces is the result of growing up in my family’s hardware store and garden center. Gardens may be more permanent constructions than homes - both are architecture.

Most importantly, I am invested in spaces of quietude and slowness - rarities right now. I seek that space for myself in the process of making, and hope to create it for others in the process of experiencing.
