I grew up in Los Angeles and continue to work there as a studio artist, teacher, and illustrator. I exhibit locally and internationally. I’ve been active in the printmaking community since I began practicing print in 2011, during my undergraduate years at Cal State Northridge. I am currently head of the Valley Print Studio, which I founded in 2013. In my own work, I create visual poems about the connection between ideas, bodies, and characters. I do this by emphasizing and reimagining the represented contact point between these things. Whether in print, drawing, or painting, my sensibility as an artist is deeply influenced by the methods and aesthetics of printmaking. For me, composition is a process of drafting, layering, and varying.
