I was born in Denver, Colorado in 1978 and studied Interdisciplinary Studies at the San Francisco Art Institute where I received my BFA in August of 2002.
I make both 2-D and sculptural mixed-media work. I often use a lot of collage, acrylic, watercolor and various unconventional materials. For me, each artistic endeavor is a test in braiding together concept, intuition and material.
My interests have always pointed towards psychology, the body, gender, queerness and what we perceive as "natural".
artists who inspire me: David Altmejd, Assume Vivid Astro Focus, Enrique Martinez Celaya, Robert Gober, Wangechi Mutu, Matthew Ritchie, Matthew Barney, Sarah Sze, Phillip Taaffe, Rex Ray and Amy Sedaris.
