Mariboe Gallery exhibit

"I am an artist who creates narratives with images and creative writing. My stories aim to be simultaneously seductive and unsettling. These bodies of work are manifested in many mediums including painting, drawing, printmaking, and artist books. My process begins with research and observation where I might read other prose and poetry, primary texts, and write down my descriptions of what I see. Then, I begin to draw from images that I feel are related to my current interests. Gradually, my images are combined with my text-based subjects and I start to formulate my own fiction. As I continue this process, my content starts to solidify and I begin to make more serious works where my narrative is more intentional. In the past, these works have taken the form of a series of paintings or an edition of artist books."
