Exhibited both nationally and internationally, my work is held in several public collections including the New York Public Library, the New-York Historical Society, the Library of Congress, the Alameda County Art Collection and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. I have recently exhibited at Johansson Projects in Oakland, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Headlands Center for the Arts, and the San Jose Museum of Art. Upcoming exhibitions include the Katonah Museum of Art, Wright State University, and the Nicolaysen Art Museum.
     My work has been featured in New American Paintings, Sleek Magazine (Berlin), Invisible City (Melbourne), Artweek, and The Map as Art: Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography by Katharine Harmon. I have been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Jentel Artist Residency Program, the Oregon College of Art and Craft, and Recology (formerly SF Recycling & Disposal), and I received a 2009-10 Fellowship from Kala Art Institute.
