I am an artist who explores nature and botany in extremely large and sometimes very small scales, in paper. Along with that I am a wife, a mother of two, and a licensed California architect. My work stems from my background as an architect, particularly my interest in how things are made and the use of repetitive elements, along with my lifelong obsession with flowers and botanical drawings. The exploration of scale plays heavily into my work, and the organized chaos and rhythms in nature make excellent case studies for my pieces, which are giant, exploded, out of control versions of the specimens from which they are modeled.
I grew up in New Hampshire, but now work and raise our family in San Francisco, via New York and New Mexico. All of my large scale work is currently created in my home studio, a.k.a. our kitchen. I never sleep, but that's okay, because I love what I do.
