Biography

When I moved from Salt Lake City to San Francisco, the transition marked the shedding of an old self. Like so many before me who were drawn to this place, I put on a new life. Paintings from the Pink Room represents the cycle of my art practice; it reveals an ending, a continuation and a beginning that encapsulates my path and my goals as an artist.

After working in various forms—photography, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, film, installation and design—the Pink Room made it possible for me to finally reconnect with drawing and painting. Experience from these other media constantly finds its way into the work, and continues to inspire my process and technique. But San Francisco has brought me home to the fact that I am, fundamentally, a painter.
