About

On the surface, my canvases seem as though they consist of only line and shape applied with a paint brush, but as you step forward, you notice that the lines are placed on by hand: using hand-cut, thinly strips of paper. I also adhere different hand-cut shapes of paper to the canvas, before I even begin painting, to create texture and depth to my work.

I’m influenced by a love of modern architecture and minimalism; both of which inform my work constructively and aesthetically.

Venice, California is where I work and reside along with my three daughters and husband.
