I was an interior designer for many years before deciding to pursue a full-time art career. I’ve always been drawn to texture, the juxtaposition of pattern and bold color. In college, I developed a passion for collage art. Today my work is a reflection of that passion, melded with the vibrant textiles and wallpapers I loved and used while practicing interior design.
In 2009, I took up a new hobby that paved the way for a career change years later: screen printing. I wanted to do something creative with my vast photo collection of skylines and icons taken on my walks around San Francisco and travels overseas. After some experimentation, and many messes, I started screen printing my images on my large supply of wallpaper samples. I quickly discovered that the images not only had significance to me, but also to the people I’d met through my art.
My studio is located in North Beach, San Francisco.
