Statement

Originally from the Seattle area, I studed fine art at the University of Washington.  After receiving a BFA in photography, I went on to work for several years as a multimedia designer before moving to Los Angeles to study and work in the healing arts.

In 2004 I performed at REDCAT in downtown Los Angeles, employing original music, movement and projected photo-animation in a short piece entitled 'Traveler's Cabaret'. 

In 2013, after a nine-year hiatus, I re-engaged my artistic practice with 'Unstill Life', a series of vibrant and expressive imagery created on the iPad by combining photography and gestural drawing.

'Mapping the Infinite' is a photographic series depicting scenes created by layering plexiglass, paint, velum, pen marks and NASA imagery to evoke subtle states of being and multi-dimensional awareness.  The NASA imagery suggests the infinite nature of consciousness, the hand-drawn marks the subjective processes of perception.
