My experimental process involves collecting specimens, combining natural materials with digital tools, layering and rearranging content, as well as translating recorded sounds into visual language. I begin my creative process by spending time alone outside. I believe we can access knowledge through slow, dedicated observation of our environment. During my process, I seek ways to connect, communicate, and obtain an active exchange with my surroundings. As we are part of nature, this process also encourages and employs self-exploration.
Through this work, I offer a glimpse of a subsurface world allowing life to be observed and the undiscovered attainable. Not only am I uncovering existing links between all living things, but I create new networks of connection, allowing multiple windows of discovery to open. The work that results is realized in sound, video, drawing, painting, and sculpture.
I have received my Master’s of Fine Arts degree from Mills College in 2021. I currently live and work in West Marin.
