After graduating in 2005, I worked in cabinet shops in and around Richmond, VA while teaching adjunct for VCU and keeping up a strong studio practice. In 2007, I won the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship, which allowed me to devote more time to the studio. In 2009, I was chosen to be the first Windgate Wood Resident at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, a semester long residency that ended with a solo show at the Art Loft Gallery in Madison. In the spring of 2010 I was a resident at Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass, Colorado. I was also invited to be a part of the traveling exhibition, “Studio Furniture: the Next Generation.”
This past summer I was asked to be a part of the EMMA International Artist Collaboration in Saskatchewan, Canada, which meant a week in the woods with a hundred or so fantastic artists. I’ve been published in several books on the Studio Furniture movement, most recently in 500 Cabinets, part of the Lark Books 500 Series. I now live in Murray, Kentucky, and am an assistant professor at Murray State University, running the Furniture Design/Wood program in the Art and Design Department.
