Our Bodies

Drawing has always been at the core of my work—even within my media-based film and video practice. Through the medium of drawing and gouache painting, I re-imagine elements of the visceral body. Disembodied abstractions dissolve into landscapes of memory, nostalgia, truths and false truths–of body, mind and spirit. My collection of ephemeral works balances the […]

Drawing + Sketches

From my undergraduate degree to my masters, I have been studying the history of medicine, specifically medical illustration and dissection as part of my visual arts practice.

Three Meditations: Findings

Soon after my completion of my graduate degree in 2008 at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, I explored further the elements of experimental film and video.
