I work in the Development Department and help with fundraising, member support, and general admissions requests by members at the Nasher Sculpture Center. I just received my research MPhil. from the University of Kent by completing my thesis titled "Re-Imaging the Family: Examining Representations of 1980s Domesticity in the Neo-Expressionist paintings of Rainer Fetting, Eric Fischl, Robert Colescott, and Ida Applebroog" and I am working on editing the work to be published.
