I’m a mixed-media artist in Los Angeles. I am a maker: paintings, drawings, murals and sculpture, working on canvas, wood, walls and paper. Acrylics, watercolor, pen + ink, house paint, recycled garbage and textiles.
I like it all.
My work ranges in size from small to oversized, and has been shown in galleries throughout the country as well as being part of many private collections.
My work is expressionist in nature and focuses on the idea of impermanence relative to life and relationships. I'm also fascinated with the idea that nothing remains the same. Each of my paintings are about flux, a natural evolution that results from the passage of time and the ever-changing nature of life. This wabi-sabi approach is central to my life and work.
Even though words may be embedded in some of the paintings, there is no literal narrative in the work. Often times they are completely hidden or sometimes revealed slightly, but always reinforcing the central theme. In a way, the process also becomes cathartic for me, as I work through life’s challenges and joys in my art making.
I’m drawn to the seemingly imperfect, unearthing and embracing subtle details that in turn, beckon viewers to explore the work more closely.
