A California Artist.... In my work the human presence, implied by its absence among man-made order, struggles in defining and redefining itself in a constantly changing relationship. I intend to explore this personal relationship with our surroundings and extend that understanding to where we’ve been using what we’ve gathered along the way. Everything we own is either earned, inherited (not earned, given) or taken (not earned, not given). These classifications reflect a depth of our personal story against an otherwise empty or unknown landscape of the self.
