I am an American artist based in London. Throughout my career I have been a potter, teacher, designer and illustrator.
A longtime passion for Persian/Indian miniature painting is integral to my practice. I have assimilated its methods, spirit and formality.
Often, my art takes its cues from written forms. The tenets of haiku inspire an approach to blending discrete visual language into a poetic whole. A veil of handwriting suggests the presence of voice; markings pulled from documents offer reference and grounding.
I work within the compressed space of the page to create a sense of intimacy whilst speaking out to something bigger.
