She currently teaches courses in both the Foundations and Sculpture programs at MCA. Her installations and object-based works, which have been shown locally and nationally, explore the link between nature and culture often with an interactive or performative element. She works with both traditional sculptural techniques and materials such as wood, metal and textiles as well as non-traditional materials. Areas of interest include sustainability and exploring existing visual and social systems.
She teaches Foundations courses including Drawing I and II, 3D Design, 2D Design, and Color Foundations, and she co-teaches Idea Process, and Criticism with Zark Strasburger and Leandra Urrutia. Additional courses taught in the sculpture program include Sculpture I and Sustainable Sculpture: Works in Cardboard.
