Artist Bio

I am a multi-disciplinary artist, writer and documentary filmmaker. My fine art consists of visual and written pieces created from the perspectives of quasi-autobiographical characters based on different time periods and places I've lived in my life.  My visual work is made up of collaged constructions in sculpture, paint, and photography focussing on themes of mixed-American identity, the environment, the passage of time, love/belonging, creativity and economics.  My intent is that each piece, written or visual, represents and expands on my own psychological landscapes: my wants, desires, fears, observations, musings and values I have held as a mixed European-Indigenous-Asian-Mexican-American woman growing up in the U.S. and who has spent her whole life looking for place, belonging, identity and meaning.

I'll write more soon about my documentary film work, as well as my other written projects. I was born in Los Angeles in 1981, and recently finished my MFA in Art Studio at the University of California, Davis.
