My most recent art is rooted in the concept of unexplored terrains and new worlds. They can be symbols of the unknown, but also of possibility, opportunity and new beginnings. I see them in the night sky at Joshua Tree, in the horizon line at the beach, and in the vastness of the desert landscape. I see these signs in my family history, as my parents both crossed oceans of uncertainty to be where they are today, and also in my own personal narrative, as I recently moved cross-country to California. It is just the beginning of my exploration of the intersection of landscape and memory.
