About The Artwork

My collage work is made from fragments of historic and contemporary artworks which I mine from books, auction catalogs, and art magazines. The recent works on paper are inspired primarily by the sculptural forms of Henry Moore and Jean Arp. Aesthetically, I am drawn to their shapes and textures, which I deconstruct to create complex and visually contradictory compositions. Over time the collage work has developed from simple layered fragments of paper to large-scale assemblages and free-standing sculptures. The rocky forms of the bright local landscape began to appear in the organic shapes and textures in the work. The pandemic had an enormous effect on my art as well; after years of isolation, the work took a turn toward even brighter colors and patterns as I revel in the complexities and contradictions of visual pleasure.

I am a sculptor and mixed media artist whose work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and can be found in many public and private collections including the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery and the Federal Reserve Board, Washington D.C., 21c Museum, Kentucky, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Oakland Museum of California, and the San Jose Museum of Art, among others. Born in San Francisco, I received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from Mills College. I have received numerous awards and fellowships including a California Arts Council Fellowship in New Genres, a Creative Work Fund Grant from the Haas Foundations, and a Potrero Nuevo environmental art grant. I have taught sculpture, interdisciplinary studies, and professional practices at the San Francisco Art Institute, California College of the Arts, San Francisco State University, and University of California, Santa Cruz. My work has been reviewed in publications including Art in America, Arte, Art On Paper, Artweek, Wired, Playboy, the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, the Village Voice, the International Herald Tribune, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times. A profile of me and my work can be found in the book: "Epicenter, San Francisco Bay Area Art Now," by Chronicle Books.
