I am a conceptual artist, traveler, and intentional in-betweener. I love the leftovers that don’t fit into categories, the new spaces created in the overlaps and the beauty in the mundane.
In my work I reveal, uncover, question what we often take for granted or believe as fact. My work sits between photography, installation, writing, and collaborative experiments. It is immersive and process driven, including travel to other countries to gather first-hand experience.
Currently, I am pairing my international peregrinations with time travel through historical archives and memories, questioning what we think we know of the past and how it informs our cultural positioning systems. How history is told, who claims the authority to tell it and how does it endure over time? This most recent exploration began at the gap of a fuzzily conclusive ancestral DNA test and has now grown to include the unidentified, generically described, the altered, and the intentionally forgotten. This work is a kind of historical fiction that reveals the fiction in history.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Hampton University in Virginia in 1996 and a Master of Science in Environmental Design from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 1999. I have exhibited in Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, Minneapolis, Cleveland, Daytona Beach, New Hampshire, Maryland, New York, Switzerland, Colombia, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Senegal and Ethiopia.
