I find it fascinating how beasts can be invented through a simple augmentation of space, light, or objects. I create costumes and toys out of found objects and various fibers and arrange sets for the photographs of the objects I create.

I am currently working with the Los Angeles Krampus troupe. http://krampuslosangeles.com/

I have been a resident artist at the Hive Gallery and Studios in downtown LA CA since July 2016.

My work has been featured in music videos featuring the Star Light Mints, Star Death and White Dwarfs and the Flaming Lips, most notably creating the infamous furry vagina ball featured in the Flaming Lips video Watching the Planets.

Exhibitions: Conduit Gallery, in Dallas, Texas, Riney Fine Arts Center, in Wichita, Kansas, Ad Hoc Gallery, in Brooklyn, New York,  Derek Erdman’s International House of Paintings, in Seattle, Washington, Copro Gallery in Los Angeles CA., Los Angeles Center for Photography, Los Angeles, CA., and The Hive Gallery, Los Angeles, CA.

My work has been featured in the Huffington Post, La Art Party OnlineNYARTS Magazine, Glass Tire Review, the Oklahoma Visual Artist Coalition’s Art Focus Magazine, and Laughing Squid as well as many music review sites.

I live in Los Angeles, CA.
