I am an established Los Angeles based artist exhibiting locally and internationally with interests in blurring the conventional distinction between organic and geometric worlds and working with a variety of materials to achieve this aim. My work employs the contrasts of utopia/dystopia; organic/geometric; fine art materials/home building materials and labor-intensive yet almost invisible chiaroscuro to address the complexity of how we want things to be and the reality of what is. It’s in the complexity of these contradictions that I find beauty. Solo exhibitions include: Jancar Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Cue Art Foundation, New York; LAXART, Culver City, CA; and a large scale wall work, in collaboration with Kim Schoenstadt, for the Los Angeles International Airport. I am currently working on a permanent public art project thought the Los Angeles County Arts Commission for a community center in San Angelo, California.
