I'm interested in the intersection of nature and urban life. Works are mainly oil and acrylic on canvas, often combined with other mediums including pastel, graphite, ink, charcoal and collage.

I create large contemporary abstract paintings from my studio in Los Angeles. I also collaborate with South L.A. based mosaic arts nonprofit Piece by Piece to produce large combination painting/mosaic artworks. Abstract expressionism, graffiti and street art all resonate with me, and my current work is often a mash up of differences and contrasts.
Self-taught, I respond to the moment with an openness to change, a variety of mediums, nuanced marks and expanses of color that often express as organic, layered, edgy urban abstract compositions. I paint because it's the best way for me to connect with the universal creative energy that's in and around all of us, all the time. When we're able to really click with it, whether through our jobs, hobbies, our family roles, work in our communities, or even when we're just alone . . . I describe it as a feeling of "energized calm with inspired momentum", like riding a wave. So for me, painting is way bigger than the individual and the artworks are actually artifacts of what feels like a very magical process. It invokes deep feelings of gratitude and a sense of the potential for this type of synergy to inspire all of us as we evolve.
