I am an artist who trained and practiced initially as an architect. I studied art at Yale College (Departmental Honors, Magna Cum Laude) and at Princeton University, where I earned a Masters of Architecture degree. My work has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States and is in the collection of the US Embassy in Sarajevo, among others. I teach art and architecture in the Bay Area, where I have my studio. My installations and drawings collaborate with natural phenomenon such as soil, wind, water, and light.
The unexpected beauty of Nature impels my work. Currently, I am exploring the aesthetic resonances of soil, collecting soils from all 50 States and forming them into tubes that hang horizontally at waist height. I am also seeking to capture the motions of continental drift and earth’s tectonic plates in sculpture, furniture and drawings. At PLAYA, I plan to continue The Earth. Soil. Dirt. project.
