I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and developed an early interest in photography and design. Throughout my life, I have relocated quite frequently. The persistent reinvention and renewal that accompanied a move has a deep impact on my artistic practice and I often utilize themes of transition in my work.
In 1998, I earned a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Idaho with an emphasis in design. After several years as a graphic designer, working for both small businesses and corporate clients in Seattle and Portland, my interests evolved. I began to study sculpture, primarily metalworking and casting, and focused on more tactile means of working. This shift from two dimensions to three also brought a new thread of content into my work. The reflection of the ways in which rapidly-changing technology effects memory and communication. Of additional interest is how objects and modes of connection become obsolete.
