About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist
Location California, United States
Introduction I am an artist working in a variety of media including Painting, Digital and sculpture. In recent years I have become preoccupied with the formal/expressive possibilities of the doll as an artform. I draw on a wide range of references including world art, mythology and popular culture to inform and empower my doll sculpture.
My work has shown in galleries throughout the US and my sculptures reside in collections throughout the US, Canada and Germany.
