a little about me

Regardless of my medium, my work celebrates my love and awe of nature. My unique cyanotype illustrations are created by combining a very old photographic printing process (cyanotype), with my background in painting and my love of botany. With these works I strive to connect more deeply with the natural world by exploring and learning about it first-hand and reflecting on our symbiotic connection to it. My prints are made from pressed plants and sometimes photographic imagery that I collect while hiking and exploring; using the natural sunlight and water available to me to produce each unique and unpredictable piece.

In  a large collection of collages entitled, In Search of Treasure, I explore our human relationship to landscape using mineral specimens as terrain to be investigated, traversed, enjoyed, and to inspire feelings of awe through surrealist moments that encourage the viewer to derive their own narrative, and place themselves in the tiny landscape that they see before them.

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 published in print and online in a variety of publications. Previously working as part of the collaborative duo, B&T, for over a decade, I have returned to my solo practice in painting, printmaking, photography, and collage. Thank you for taking the time to view my work. Visit my Instagram for my newest work @Biminy.
