I first began producing art in 2000 largely as a self taught artist. In 2004 I took my first formal art classes at UC Berkeley Extension and later at the San Francisco Art Institute. I continue to take art courses at these institutions and have consistently been exploring and expanding my artistic expression. My work has been exhibited at a number of different venues. Beginning with a strong emphasis in drawing, I have expanded my oeuvre to include mixed media, collage and painting. Past and current work explores paintings of surreal landscape; paintings of abstracted botanical "portraits", androgynous portraits in a number of different media; and, intricate collages. I have a continued emphasis on my drawing as expressed in "faces" and their inclusion within a non-traditional format as seen in my Connections and Fragments Series; incorporation of faces on furniture pieces; as well as in my Vocal Hovering series, the latter of which incorporates text with the faces.
