Through the mediums of paint and reclaimed materials, I process human relationships to social structures, built and natural environments. I am interested in what happens at the periphery of the structure: rituals of protection + resistance, re-interpretations, and the resultant process of language creation. The work itself is a mapping of that exploration, a side effect of re-imaging a more intimate relationship to material, environment and space.
I was raised in the Bay Area and currently based in California. I attended Humboldt State University, pursuing the fields of religious studies, art history and studio arts. From there my practice has shapeshifted between studios, bedrooms + basements, artist residencies, and travel-heavy sketchbooks.
