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 northern California and currently live and work in San Francisco. I attended Humboldt State University, falling into the fields of religious studies, art history and studio arts. From there my practice has shapeshifted between studios, bedrooms, artist residencies, and travel-heavy sketchbooks.
