Biography

Most recently I have been interested in the confluence of knowledge, perception, and mystery; the transcendence of epiphany; the outcomes of flawed understanding; and the aggregate that comprises the self. Material experimentation and selections are a core component of my practice; recent choices reflect an exploration of childhood as self-creation. Tinsel, glitter, iridescent plastics, ribbons, stickers, aluminum foil, crystals, hot glue, rhinestones, and other items I associate with youthful optimism and imagination are elevated through their treatment and arrangement. Compositionally, I have been using grids and geometry to formalize and ground these playful, frenetic materials.

I spent my formative years in the damp forested hills of the Pacific Northwest, and then moved to Houston where I earned a BFA in jewelry/metalsmithing in 2005 from the University of Houston. I lived and worked in Houston until July 2018 when I moved to Tucson Arizona. I keep a private studio at home.
