Dear Search Committee,
I am writing with interest in joining the team at your intuition. As a artist I have been exposed to many challenges, from materials, software, faberactors, and research. These challenges are deeply rooted in the art making process and the challenges of everyday. The most influential tool I learned from being a artist started when I began working with my grandfather. He was a jack of all trades and a master of none but had the ability to fix, make, and shine up anything, anywhere, with just the materials he had laying around. I worked closely with him - studying his methods and approaches to problem solving - while I was pursuing my BFA in Photography from The University of Akron. The program was structured in a very traditional format utilizing film and digital technologies. I learned studio lighting, high res film scanning, and alternative processes which was the polar opposite to working with my grandfather. I graduated and moved on to the next chapter in my life, pursuing a MFA in Photography at the University of Georgia. I started to notice a change in my work and a need to make and solve a problem within the materials and research. This took on many forms, from the use of plywood, sculpture, book design, painting, 3D printing, laser cutting, and printing billboard sizes prints. I learned that the process of problem solving materials, structures and research has allowed me to take large strides within my art practice.The skill of problem solving and thinking outside the box is such a vital aspect to are everyday I hope to have the ability to join your team and bring the skills I have learned while also learning more.
