By drawing historical, cultural, and political metaphors out of common materials and stylistic references, I create maps of broken stories that explore ideologies that shape our understanding and existence. The genesis of my ideas, come from a desire to visualize the invisible systems in which we live. Many of my projects attempt to map, these systems that we practice without knowing it. Some of the systems that I have explored in my work are, global disease, migration of labor, economics, and religion. I am also interested in how these unseen systems are accepted in our communal mind.
I was born and raised in Western Colorado on an apple farm. After high school I moved to Philadelphia where I received my BFA at Moore College of Art and Design. I received my Master in Fine Art/Sculpture from Arizona State University and I now live and work in Los Angeles. Some of my most notable achievements are that I am a recipient of a Nathan Cummings Fellowship to China and Tibet, and have received a public art grant for the city of Phoenix, and have performed with the LA Art Girls.
