Worked on House of Eternal Return, Omega Mart & Convergence Station

Bio

I was born and raised in Santa Fe, graduated from NMSA majoring in Visual Arts, and began volunteering on the HoER in the fall of 2015. When the House opened, I worked as a Docent Lead for almost a year before transitioning back to Exhibition Studios. I got the opportunity to make Crystal Grotto during our first round of annual upgrades, worked on both of our festival projects (Eclipse and Life is Beautiful in 2017), and the Dark Ride we created for Elitch Gardens in 2019. I have also been working on the Las Vegas and Denver exhibitions for the entirety of their lifespans (to varying degrees). I consider myself to be an "extreme generalist" when it comes to the skills and materials I use in my work, my main focuses being painting, sculpting, and miniatures, and assemblage.

Projects

I painted the Happy Greebles mural opposite of the sculptural panels, the 3 Soul Crushed Machine murals, as well as much more painting in the factory. I worked with Curtis Lee to create more egg boxes for the Shelf Portal in Omega Mart. I helped with sculpting and painting the Melted Shopping Basket, and to paint and age many of the Factory Control Panels and Dramcorp computer enclosures. I also did a lot of necessary install/frosting tasks like painting doors and walls and trim, hanging blackout cloth, installing vinyl and sculptures, and other creative "gap filling" to make the space feel more whole and unified.
