I am interested in the beauty around us and also in how we understand and relate to each other as individuals with inherently different genetic, cultural, social, economic and neurological foundations. As a result I have two bodies of work. Land and waterscapes depicting the natural beauty of the Bay Area and figurative work grounded in my personal experience as a caregiver for a young adult with Autism. In this multi-media work I incorporate artifacts accumulated in the process of daily living for individuals. This combination of alphanumeric documents, original and found imagery, and representational portraiture suggests many layers of experience.
