My work is a reflection and reinterpretation of pop culture from the 50s, 60s, and 70s combined with a reimagined culture of today. For my mixed media paintings, I combine magazine cut-outs with water-based paints and integrate them into “other worldly” landscapes. For my collage series, I combine vintage magazine cut-outs on paper to create surreal, dreamy vignettes. These works are meant to reveal a deeper underlying psychological theme, feeling, or political statement that transcends time.
As a Denver-based artist with a background in arts administration, I have worked for the last 18 years as a freelance professional artist. After receiving a BFA with a concentration in painting from Colorado State University, I relocated to Denver in 2003 to further grow my art career. My work has been included in numerous exhibitions around the US, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Rhode Island, and Washington. Today, I continue to push my artistic boundaries and explore new creative processes all from my at home studio in Denver.
