As a writer and artist, I’m interested in the confluence of stories and visual art, often through the perspective of the natural world. I like to blend personal narratives and artwork together. For example, in collaboration with Lauren Kindle,  I’ve painted portraits of strangers and their stories for a project called Intersections. I’ve also created a paper quilt project called Seams, based on interviews with women scientists and artists. This project was supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
