In these recent drawings I investigate different ways of organizing accumulated and convoluted marks on paper by abstracting them into a harmony of grids and spectrums. These works are spawned from my growing interest in the practice of collecting and archiving, specifically historical objects and their relationship to landscape history.

I currently live and work in the Santa Cruz Mountains in Northern California and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from San Jose State University in 2015.
