About

Employing a saturated color palette and luminous and textural media ranging from illustration markers to textiles, I hope to inspire my viewers to engage with the dazzling mystery of the present moment. Utilizing chromatic colors, dynamic line work and complex multi-layered patterns, and moved by a handmade ethos, I aim to create art that radiates beauty and buzzes with visual meaning.

My work is largely informed by my journeys, physical and spiritual alike. I have volunteered in Guatemala, worked on the Navajo Indian Reservation, meditated with the Ishaya Monks and roamed much of the continental United States and Hawaiian islands. I studied abroad in Malaga Spain, which gave me the opportunity to dance Flamenco with the Roma, ride a camel in Morocco, camp in the Sahara desert and explore grottos in Portugal.

I studied abroad in Malaga Spain, which gave me the opportunity to dance Flamenco with the Roma, ride a camel in Morocco, camp in the Sahara desert and explore grottos in Portugal. I have wandered from the Parthenon to the Pantheon and through some sixteen countries in-between.

The visual tropes, iconography, and symbology that I employ have a number of sources: Eastern religion, Western mysticism and sacred geometry. I have also taken inspiration from the psychedelic poster art of the 1960s, Vincent Van Gogh’s expressionism, Georgia O’Keefe’s nature-eroticism, as well as the work of Alphonse Mucha and Gustav Klimt. Please join me on my voyage, as I weave new stories of radical awakening and fresh perception, in the hope of re-envisioning our reality, evoking compassion and harmony with the earth and its inhabitants.
