BIO

I AM A DIGITAL COLLAGE ARTIST LIVING AND WORKING IN LOS ANGELES, WITH ROOTS IN BOSTON, MIAMI, AND MARFA,TX.

I ORIGINALLY STARTED OUT AS A PRINTMAKER WITH A DEGREE IN DESIGN, AND MIGRATED TO PAPER COLLAGES.

EXPERIMENTING TO EXPAND MY RANGE, I DISCOVERED THE ART OF DIGITAL COLLAGES USING MANIPULATED PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHS.

'IT'S A WAY OF BEING ABLE TO PRODUCE MY WORK IN MULTIPLES'

THIS INFLUENCED THE CREATION OF DESIGNS AND PATTERNS WHICH CAN BE USED ACROSS MULTIPLE PLATFORMS INCLUDING WALLCOVERINGS, FABRICS, AND TILES

ALL DESIGNS ARE DIGITALLY MADE FROM DESIGN TO MANUFACTURED PRODUCT.
