BIO

I am currently living and working in Denver, CO as an Adjunct Instructor at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design and Metro State University.   I hold my BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and my MFA from UC Santa Barbara.  I was recently featured in issue #111 of New American Paintings and was the UCSB nominee for the 2015 Dedalus Foundation Masters of Fine Art Fellowship. Currently, I am deeply engaged with the passionate, thoughtful work of The New Genres Collective a new-media collaborative project I co-founded alongside artist, Tobias Fike.

STATEMENT

I use art to make sense and make nonsense of things.  Recently I've been fascinated by an interesting poetic quandry -  how the form of a bowtie is similar to the image of a corner space.  I've been making work that uses these forms interchangebly while weaving in ideas about shame.  This has led to an ongoing, expanding inquiry.
