Artist Statement

I make art that hopes to give viewers a glimpse into little facets of the natural world, a peek into the magical space around us. The images I chose layer memory and ideas about the nature, while using layers of different art materials. I often include ink and pencil drawing, acrylic paint, block prints, and collage. I draw from memory and from objects I find on hikes, in gutters, or at the beach.

I love nature with my whole heart. Being from Santa Cruz County redwood forest has helped me find gorgeous nature everywhere. Wherever I’ve traveled, in cities where I’ve lived, I have always focused on how nature thrives in unexpected spaces. Sidewalk cracks, under floors, in empty lots, nature is everywhere in the space around us. Thank goodness!
