This was a collaborative project with Adrienne Grafton during our Residency at Salem Art Works in 2014. We stayed across the street from a Revolutionary War cemetery during our time there. In addition to convincing ourselves we heard noises from the cemetery at night, completely spooking ourselves, we felt compelled to make something for the unique space. We collected materials from the grounds and used them to stencil a wreath for a flag to be placed in the cemetery.
We created a series of quick site specific projects we referred to as "Imprints", these are projects that explored the experiences outside of our main projects we were working on during our stay. In a way these documented the peripheral experience we had while in Salem.

Continuing on the theme of "Imprints", Adrienne and I catalogued the variety of tools and toiletries we carried with us to our residency at Salem Art Works in July 2014.
This paper installation was a collaborative project with Cindy Flowers, completed in 2009. We were among a group of artists "locked in" the gallery at the Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro, North Carolina. Over the course of a long, long day we developed our idea, created and installed the work. The result is reminiscent of underwater growth.
