My work is primarily mixed-media, with a concentration on art quilts. Most of my work is inspired by life’s poignant experiences. I am especially interested in establishing a narrative in my work. I enjoy creating multiple interpretations within a piece, and I take pleasure in exploring concepts and ideas using a variety of materials in unexpected ways. Whimsy, bold color schemes, text and found materials often characterize my work.

I grew up on Maui, Hawaii, which heightened my aesthetic sensibilities and appreciation of color and the natural environment. I have a deep love of diverse materials and for working with my hands. I studied Architecture, which expanded my capacity to think spatially, and introduced me to many concepts that I now explore in my artwork, such as layering and transparency.
