Hello!

I am a multimedia artist whose work encompasses painting, drawing, textile and surface design, video, photography, writing, and comics. Themes of place, history, and time run through my work; I like built-up layers, blurry edges, and transitions of meaning and use.

As an exhibiting artist, my work has been shown nationally and placed in numerous corporate and private collections.

After finishing my MFA at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2008, I moved to Berlin for six years before moving to Portland, Oregon and then Boise, Idaho. I live in Minneapolis…for now.

I am the creative director at the Field Office, which I founded in Berlin in 2008.

Since 2010, I’ve written for the Berlin-based publisher Gestalten, where I contribute an artist’s perspective to their books about visual culture.

My webcomic, aforeigncountry.com, interprets everyday life from the past as found in old newspapers and photographs.

While living in Berlin, I produced a series of video diaries that created a layered portrait of a time and place in the city.
