about the artist

Regardless of what medium I employ, my work celebrates my love and awe of nature. Over the past year I have created a large collection of collages entitled, In Search of Treasure. In this ongoing series I explored our human relationship to landscape using mineral specimens as terrain to be contemplated, explored, enjoyed, and to inspire feelings of awe. I have often fantasized about shrinking down and adventuring over the surfaces of a really great rock I have found, and I wanted to express this fantasy through surrealist moments that encourage the viewer to derive their own narrative, and place themselves in the tiny landscape that they see before them.

In my newest series of cyanotypes I combine my background in painting with my love of photography as I explore a sense of place and observe how native and non native species of flora and fauna in various environments co-exist with one another.

I have exhibited with spaces such as LA Louver, the UCLA Hammer museum, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, and the Los Angeles Freewaves Festival. I have been working as part of the collaborative duo, B&T, for over a decade, and have returned to developing my solo practice in recent years. Thank you for taking the time to view my work.
