I’m a printmaker and visual artist passionate about using creativity to confront climate change through collaboration and expression.
When i’m not working for Iron Maid Art, Native Sustainability, or Minneapolis Craft Market, i’m making. I’m inspired by human relationships with the outdoors and use my art to advocate for the environment through subject matter and financial donations. My art finds cohesion in connections to our roots; the act of producing it grounds me.
I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and graduated from St. Olaf College in 2017 with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Sociology. I’ve downhill skied since before I can remember, racing all the way through college. Other pursuits include climbing, mountain biking, running, paddling, volleyball, and general outdoorsy fun stuff.
Iron Maid Art
I spend a large portion of time at the Iron Maid Art studio in the Northrup King Building. Artist Crysten Nesseth runs this Woman-Owned, Wisconsin/Minnesota-based, Recycled Arts Small Business. As an ‘Iron Maiden’, I assist Crysten with inventory management, product design, order fulfillment, and general badassery. And, we find plenty of time for adventures of all sorts.
I am a Coordinator with Native Sustainability, a creative environmental consulting firm under Megan Dobratz, LEED AP. Native Sustainability takes sustainability beyond the technical. Redefining sustainability through innovative approaches, creative solutions, and resource / network connections.
Minneapolis Craft Market // Minneapolis Vintage Market
Many of my weekends are spent managing the Mpls Craft Markets and Mpls Vintage Markets. I have found meaningful connections in this community of makers. It energizes me to help cultivate supportive settings for small businesses to succeed.
