I reside in Northern California, but I am from the Inland Empire.
My creative process has led me to floral arrangement, sculpture, video, and music.
I believe that materials posses a life of their own, and my hands are a vessel to combine different materials that work together to form things that are unassuming and exist for themselves, and not the gallery space.
Some influential artists in my life (in no order) include (but are not limited to): EE Storey, Natalie Jeremijenko, Esther Stocker, Iris Van Herpen, Toko Yasuda, Leslie Feist, Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg.
I also think the Earth, and her spirit, is an influential artist and we learn everything from her at the end of it all.
