I am an artist and writer, currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Born and raised in Colorado, I studied painting and sculpture at Kansas City Art Institute and the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia; I received an MFA degree from Yale University School of Art.
I am currently an assistant curator of art at the Albuquerque Museum. From 2008-2013, I taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Columbia College Chicago; previously I taught at The University of Texas and elsewhere. I’ve exhibited my own work, and curated the work of others, nationally and internationally. I’ve written about art and other subjects for magazines and newspapers including Artlies, Art Papers, Glasstire, Buddhadharma, and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, where I was gallery art critic from 2005 to 2008.
