Born in Seattle and raised against the lush backdrop of Maui, I currently reside in Los Angeles. Art has been an ever present outlet and impulse since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I have had no formal training. Endlessly inspired by the 1960s, the cosmos, the natural world, and mythology, these themes often find their way into my work.
I have recently returned from 3 months abroad; traveling the banks of the Ganges River and the Himalayan foothills of India, bustling Parisian streets, the Andalusian countryside, the blue doors of western Morocco, to the nightlife of Berlin, and ending in the quietude of Copenhagen. I've come back recharged and inspired to pursue the life in art I have always envisioned. I only hope to spread light with these images.
