About Scholarship Artist's Books Online Graphic Work Projects Publications Talks & Lectures Bio Contact

My activity as a scholar, writer, and artist takes many forms. My scholarship focuses on issues of visual knowledge production, with an emphasis on visual forms of language as well as graphic communication. My creative practice includes my own editioned artist's books as well as work published by others. My graphic art engages with organic materials, the aesthetics of decay, and conceptual projects. My full corpus includes a wide variety of projects, performances, installations, and exhibitions as well as publications, lectures, and teaching.
