"California...here, beneath the immense bleached sky, is where we run out of continent." -Joan Didion
Aa a California native, my desire to in some way capture and make sense of my surroundings has been a constant. Life and travel abroad have broadened my perspective and deepened my appreciation for the inherent tension, immense scale and vastness of the American West. An ongoing interest in language and movement continues to refine my sensibility while informing my relationship to the materials I paint with.
