I am a graduate from the University of New Mexico with a BS in biology. I love being outdoors and I'm interested in studying wildlife. I find a lot of inspiration in nature for my art, so, for me, the two go hand in hand.

My artwork takes a surrealistic view of biological process and how they interact with our fabricated human environments. Evolution is an ongoing process and I try to show this in my art work. I tell a story of organisms that have evolved in cohesion with man's machines or discarded relics. For example, coral may use sunken planes as a foundation to start a new colony. How far can this interaction go? Can organisms entirely integrate man-made objects into their complex systems? I merge biology with industry and shapes that most…

How far can this interaction go? Can organisms entirely integrate man-made objects into their complex systems? I merge biology with industry and shapes that most people are familiar with to try and convey this concept. Often these themes are combined in intricate sculptures that feature biological entities and structures juxtaposed with harsh geometric shapes, while trying to establish a soft merger of the two.


The new series I intend to focus on, explores the inner workings of the human psyche an the forces that are imposed on an individual that effect the behavior and characteristics of that individual. I intend to do this by displaying various figurative and expressionistic forms, as well as geometric elements, that produce a surreal composition of the human figure.
