Biography

I am an interdisciplinary artist based in Seattle since 1992.  

 

My work often originates from a personal curiosity (and sometimes autodidactic approach), presenting invitations to explore different perceptions, memories of place, and spaces of imagination. 

These explorations have included the use of sound as a material in artwork,  and the distribution of sound as a medium for listening.

 

Since 2005 my work has been inspired by my experiences during multiple travels throughout Asia. 

During these journeys, I have gathered numerous audio recordings of location, daily life, and ceremony.  I have also made drawings and paintings, which act as source material for recombination in later works. These have manifested in many ways, from audio releases,  to performance, radio broadcasts,  visual exhibits, installations, and various combinations thereof.

 

My visual and audio works have been  exhibited and performed in museums, festivals and venues across

Southeast Asia, Europe, the US, including

AUDIOSPHERE: Social Experimental Audio, Pre- and Post-Internet - Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia - Madrid Spain 2020,

15 Ans De Sublime Frequencies Festival  - Paris 2018,

ArtJog8  - Yogyakarta Indonesia 2015. 

I have attended residencies in USA  (Florida, Washington) and Indonesia (Java).

Awards include Artist Trust/Washington State Arts Commission Fellowship (2006).

My work is in the collections of the Seattle and Tacoma Art Museums, and others.
