Map & Directions

I’m a Minneapolis photographer who lives in a plastic world inhabited by an infamous resident. My love for the “even less accurate than Barbie” realities that 50’s and 60’s entertainment portrays complements my stoic muse and my sense of humor. Additionally, my photographs have strong design and color elements, often referencing 50’s and 60’s aesthetics. With her introduction in 1959, Barbie is right at home.

I have a BA from Macalester College with a major in Studio Art, and an Associate Degree from Minneapolis Community and Technical College in Photography and Digital Imaging.

My work has been shown at a variety of galleries, festivals and exhibits including: Hopkins Center for the Arts, Mpls Photo Center, Praxis Gallery, The Knockdown Center, Gamut Gallery, Intermedia Arts, Nash Gallery, Robbin Gallery, MN State Fair, Uptown Art Fair, Edina Art Fair and the Stone Arch Bridge Festival.
