me & rusty

I was born & raised in the Northeastern United States. I was raised by humans but somehow I imprinted on the animals & plants that surrounded me. I learned how to express this love non-verbally with art-making rituals in my formative years.

I am bonded with the natural world. My training as a biologist provides evidence that none of us is separate from the universe’s amazing systems. I am forever captivated by the mysteries woven into nature’s delicate patterns wherever they occur; in my skin, leaves, feathers, etc. I combine these observations with my creative experiments to evolve as a person.


The artwork on this site reflects a time of transformation in my life; during and just after, earning an MFA degree in visual arts from New England College’s School of Art & Design. These experiments were undertaken for personal growth & research, rather than commerce.
