Artist Statement -



I hold my Bachelor of the Arts from The University of Southern California, Los Angeles and a Post Graduate degree from The Byam Shaw College. Painting, drawing and photography are my primary medium also focused in video, performance and text.

Fascinated by people and culture, I examine the voice of the individual and how it correlates with our external world. Much of my work is ‘unfolding the dream’; softening the lines between art in it’s physical form, and what is alive, while recognizing the intangible (or that which comes to us from outside of our understanding of the physical world). Throughout many years of this process, the symbols of daily life and those used in classical iconography have become a poignant aspect of my imagery.

My current works connect the individual’s journey and the external world together through nature’s poignant symbol, the spiral. I use this form to exemplify the workings of our Universe in my drawings, paintings and in a multi media based exhibition. I am currently a resident of Albuquerque, and have lived in Taos since 1994. I exhibit Nationally and Internationally, and my works are held in numerous museum and significant private collections.
