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 work has been featured in House and Garden Magazine. My studio is located in North Beach, San Francisco.
