My first art award — kindergarten, circa 1992. The concept was something about my dog, stuffed animals, and my invisible self flying in an airplane. First place in photography.

Humility and the Things We Cannot Change. Mixed Media (watercolor, ink, image transfers, record, glitter, gold leaf, gouache, and marker) on Arches paper. 2019. 

About a year ago, I started developing scotomas (blind spots) in my vision. I’ve been to a bunch of doctors (and spent a bunch of money) and I still don’t have an explanation for why I keep developing the retinal lesions that cause these spots. As a person who needs to create in order to feel purposeful (and I do this most fluently with my eyes) this situation plunged me into a pit of anxiety and despair. I’ve tried to shift my mindset to practice gratitude and try to take things day by day, which is all we really have anyway.

What do you do when you can’t decide which fluorescent embroidery floss color to use? Obviously, use them all.

My local news station, KOAM, did a feature on my work being in the HBO show Mrs. Fletcher. Pardon the awkwardness, I'm always dorky on the news.
