I am a multimedia artist and curator whose interdisciplinary practice includes photography, video installations, and books, and combines elements of documentation, fieldwork, performance and collaboration. 

In 2020 I moved from Los Angeles to a redwood forest on The Sea Ranch, California. Shifting from an urban to a rural scene had a great impact in my practice, when I decided to focus on trees, and explore concepts of environmental art. Overtime with fires in this region, my relationship with the landscape changed making me think of the purpose of my artwork in face of climate change. Since then I’ve extensively researched about tree life and experimented with new mediums, such as building a sculpture to listen to the forest whisper, a series of tree “rubbings” to capture the energy of ancient redwoods, and photographic processes to make visible the hidden life of trees. My goal is to capture the essence of the natural world, evoking deep connections between ourselves and the environment.

In 1996 I earned an MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles and my work has been featured in many exhibitions in the US, Brazil, Greece, Taiwan, and Canada, and locally at The Sea Ranch Lodge, LyndonDesign Gallery and Gualala Art Center.
