Painter

Graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University in 2011, with a primary focus in oil painting and metalsmithing. I’ll be attending graduate school in the fall of 2016 to earn a master’s degree in fine art at California College of the Arts.
Continuing to examine the endless path of the earth’s ability to constantly shift, disintegrate and thus transform is my prominent focus. Adapting weathering processes triggered by natural elements, I create work as a tribute to life’s ability to reshape itself. I’ll be applying this theme to my work in Onishi, taking advantage of its vast landscape; hopefully offering the viewer a shared tranquility through nature.

シラキュース大学で油絵や金属鋳造の分野で美術学士号を取得。今秋よりカリフォルニアで大学院に進学予定です。
私が最も注目している事柄は、地球の、常に変動し、分解を経て、変質をするという性質です。私は鬼石で創る作品にも、この土地ならではの雄大な自然を活用して、その題材を元に制作活動を行うつもりです。私の作品を通して鑑賞者の皆さんに自然の静けさを共感して頂きたいです。
