artist bio: "I was raised in Seattle, Washington where I was encouraged by my mother to explore my artistic endeavors at an early age as a painter. During my first two years of college I became fascinated by the process of creation, which led me to discover printmaking. However I soon became aware that by creating flat representations of my ideas, I was inhibiting my ability to create. I first became interested in making a transition to sculptural work while employed by my father, who is a skilled carpenter. His influence has guided me to the San Francisco Art Institute where I am currently enrolled in the BFA sculpture program."

My work can be described as a rearrangement of everyday reality. I seek to restructure ideas, iconic images, and function of objects in an attempt to evoke new meaning for the viewer. In order to meet this end, I combine assemblage of found objects with my own constructed materials.
