I am an artist originally from Orange, CA, since resided in Colorado for 5 years, and currently living in Seattle, WA. My work is primarily illustration and painting, but printmaking and ceramic sculpture come into play when they are accessible. Miscellaneous materials get involved when needed. As a child, I always searched the backyard for the “perfect mud” – checking under that one orange tree.. digging underneath the sand.. beneath the boysenberry bushes.. – and now, in art, I’m doing a similar thing, searching for that “perfect mud” that is my preferred artistic medium.
My work tends to generally focus on the repetitive physical structure of the human face and body and the subtle details that distinguish human beings. Mannerism, distortion, and color become significant tools for enhancing these details – the emphasis being on those flaws and quirks that make individuals.
