2017 Paintings & Screenprints
For this collection I was focused on the Western landscape. They are screenprints on top of paintings of horizons, texts, and road signs inspired by driving in California. Rather than depicting specific places, the works represent an idealized landscape of the road trip, westward expansion, and Hollywood. I was interested in the way the imaginary and symbolic Western landscape of the frontier, westward expansion, Hollywood, and counterculture intersected with my actual experience while driving.

2016 Paintings & Screenprints
A collection of desert-themed acrylic works with layered painting and screenprinting on canvas wrapped wood panels. The patterned cow skulls have fern and teardrop backgrounds. The series features gold, bronze, and other metallic inks and paints - I wanted to contrast the nature motifs with cold metallic glamour and graphic patterns.

More Paintings & Screenprints from 2016
A series of large scale and small-scale surreal paintings & screenprints. The large pieces are on canvas covered panels and the small pieces are on paper. The mediums used range from acrylic to gouache to screenprinting. I was focused on combining styles such as illustration, pattern photography, and abstraction to create a dreamlike feeling.

Happy in the End
Colorful acrylic works based on hand-drawn inky illustrations which are then digitized, screen printed, and painted on canvas wrapped hardwood panels.of skulls and daisies. I layered spraypaint, acrylic paint, and screenprinting. I used skull, flower, and mushroom motifs, which were inspired partially by tattoo art, in this collection, remixing them from one piece to the next to experiment with shifting their context and signification.
