Artist Statement

 

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and began my art practice by drawing the family dog, Whiskey. Subsequently I earned my BFA at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. My current practice includes drawings, paintings, intaglio printmaking and installation.

I continue to live and work in Los Angeles.
