I have always been fascinated with dreams, while intrigued by the beguiling and hilarious absurdities of my human experience. In my work, I endeavor to put the two together in strange and otherworldly narratives. I try to move people out of a comfortable "knowing," and into the sublime fancy of imagination and personal exploration. The haunting physical and emotional isolation of my characters is the heart and hallmark of my work. Though primarily a painter, I have explored and created in many mediums, including lithography, photography, and assemblage.
Talent is vital but a classical education exposes an artist to techniques and philosophies that influence and hone individual style. My education began with classes at Colorado State University and Brigham Young University, including studies abroad in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and Florence, Italy. My degrees are from San Diego State University and the University of California, Santa Barbara. I have been exhibiting consistently since 1992 at galleries in New York, Chicago, California, Miami, Philadelphia, and SantaFe. I am currently represented by Sarah Bain Gallery in Anaheim, CA, and Evoke Contemporary Gallery in Santa Fe, NM.
