I was born and spent my childhood, on Catalina Island, off of the coast of Southern California. Living on an island promotes a sense of isolation from the rest of the world, providing a rich medium for growing an artist and maker. I now live in Portland, Oregon.
I am primarily a painter, but have exhibited artwork ranging from prints, ceramics, collage, and installation in galleries throughout the Pacific Northwest. My paintings and illustrations have been published nationally.
My paintings explore life from a narrative perspective, blurring the lines between abstraction and representation. I’m interested in the psychological landscape and how narratives impact individual and community interactions with the sentient world. In this way, the paintings hold space for conversation, and diverse thought.
