I am a fifth doctoral candidate in the History of Art department. My dissertation explores the connections between ceramics and conceptual art practices on the east and west coasts in the 1960s and 1970s. In 2015 I curated and authored the catalogue for The Ceramic Presence in Modern Art at the Yale University Art Gallery, an exhibition which brought ceramic sculpture into direct dialogue with painting, sculpture in other media, and works on paper from the second half of the twentieth century.
Recently I have been working on the Native American Art Initiative with the Yale University Art Gallery, a developing program to encourage greater representation of Native art at the Gallery and greater engagement with the Native community in and around Yale.
I am originally from Maine and New York City and before returning to school lived and worked as a studio potter in the Pacific Northwest.
