Statement: After studying video art and photography at the Kansas City Art Institute I moved west to enroll in the Performance/Video department at SFAI. My practice has grown into something eclectic and varied, including painting, collage, video, performance, poetry, and prose. I’m flexible. If I dream a song, then I write a song, or I can spend months on a detailed watercolor. These new works describe the plasticity of the grid.
