An essential part of my work involves collaboration between artist and audience, creating opportunities to connect with others through play. I am interested in making art that explores play as both a common ground and a way of lowering audience self-consciousness as I invite them to participate in the creative process. My style has always been very graphic and improvisational, with bold colors and patterns central to each of my prints. These framed prints represent both the inspiration for my work and my response to specific moments captured in a previous project, "Make Your Mark," which was a six-foot by six-foot magnetic chalkboard that included contributions from audience members in the ongoing installation.
Hi, I'm Audrey! My career is based in the visual arts, nonprofit administration, and museum education. I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a BFA in Studio Art and Minors in Art History and Psychology in 2019. I'm a "doer" who loves running on the ground making things happen, but I'm also not afraid of wildly dreaming. My side hustle is helping my friends produce a podcast Artpop Talk. In my free time, my husband and I perfect the art of flexitarian cooking—we consider ourselves part-time vegans—and take frequent walks at the park near our apartment in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
