My practice is centered on the creation of light and sound landscapes, spanning a range of media from video, digital prints and sound installation. My primary concern is the articulation of the contextual ambience of specific environments. Drawing upon the American West’s vast visual landscape of color and atmosphere, the work explores new contexts and locales for sublime color or sound palettes hidden in natural or man-made environments.
The work embraces the technical rather than rejecting it. I use digital and technological innovation to expand upon the idea of seeing. This affords an extreme depth and precision to color and gradients that are all but impossible with traditional media. While my practice is informed by the traditions of the Light and Space works of the 1960s, I use hyper-contemporary tools and methods - 4k video capture and projection, high resolution dye sublimation printing on fabric and paper and multi-channel digital sound technologies.
The colorfields, video environments and sound works are radically abbreviated in terms of detail. Recognizable references are highly edited or removed altogether, allowing the viewer to experience pure color, light and sound. Across all media, the experience of light and dimension is at the center of my practice, and is a reflection of a search for the infinite and immaterial.
I hold an MFA from University of California Los Angeles and a BFA from California College of the Arts, San Francisco. My works have been exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, The Los Angeles Architecture and Design Museum, The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, The Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Queens, New York, The Design Biennial Ljubljana, Slovenia, The Rietveld Art Academy, Amsterdam, Netherlands and Subliminal Projects, Los Angeles.

I discovered this James Turrell work at the Fog Fair San Francisco in 2022, compliments of Pace Gallery.
Turrell's works are what propelled me into my current line of thought on making art. While at UCLA working on my MFA, I wrote a short essay on his works and career, and made several small video works that were certainly experimenting with what I learned while researching his work and some of the other Light and Space movement artists from that time.
Artists like Turrell, Robert Irwin, Mary Corse, Larry Bell, Helen Pashgian and others from that movement really awakened a need I had inside - happy to be able to recognize the beginnings of my current body of work!
