About Me

I am an artist and art educator currently pursuing my MFA in Studio Art at the San Francisco Art Institute. I received my MA in Art at Eastern Illinois University. I have taught Painting 1, Drawing 1, and Intro. to 2-D Design at several community colleges in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Artist Statement (Updated February 2018)

Through an interdisciplinary approach to art making I have been exploring prelinguistic visual experiences, involving phenomena such the visceral, the intuitive, and the act of perception. A central question to my work is the expression and reception of meaning outside the rational.

I have been pursuing these ends through experimentation with expressionist marks, my body and the medium of light.
