May 2024

I graduated this month from Claremont Graduate University with an MFA in studio art. The program balanced coursework in contemporary art with hands-on studio work. I received a Lincoln Ceramic Fellowship which involves working at the Scripps College ceramic building where I helped make clay and glazes, run the kilns, and assist students with their projects.

In the first year of the program, I concentrated on understanding my mediums and materials. I learned to make my own paint (oils, watercolors, and gouaches) and paper. In the second year, I created series of paintings using my own handmade materials. The images below are an abbreviated portfolio of work created during my MFA program.
