In my personal studio practice, Natural Curiosities are what inspire me, especially my explorations of the Sierra Nevada topography. I experience a phenomenon--birds, trees, water systems--and try to convey my wonder, a sense of the place. I am also active in social justice practice, teaching and collaborating with students of all ages on the margins of our community.
