The Artist's Perspective

Art and Design

Before falling in love with philosophy, I envisioned a career as an artist. While my career plans have changed, my love for and practice of art has not.

Scroll on to see examples of my work and learn about how I connect my philosophy, art, and teaching.

Portraits, Pedagogy, and Representation

Sculpture

In my undergraduate Studio Art degree, I specialized in sculpture, particularly welding. While I am not currently able to weld on the scale and frequency of my college days, I do still create small-scale metal, paper-mâché, and mixed media sculptures. 

The slideshow to the right includes images from my senior showcase Techne, which was a herd of life-size draft horses crafted from scrap metal and displayed on the front lawn of Converse University, as well as a selection from my recent personal sculpture projects.
