My work explores how humans relate to our reality- nature, time, objects- through a wide variety of media. I am especially fascinated by the expressive posibilites of glass, its ability to be transparent, opaque, liquid, solid, clear, or distortive. In my recent work I have explored how glass, a material often prized for it's clarity, can also complicate our perspectives. I find this dichotomy fascinating as I consider the consequences of distortion percieved as truth. I received my MFA from California State University, San Bernardino, (2018) and have a BA in Art, Business Language & Culture, and Spanish from the College of Idaho. (2007) I live and work in San Diego, California.
