Born in Arcadia, California in 1983. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.

Influenced by frequent childhood visits to Disneyland, I seek and photograph ambiguous markers, manicured landscapes, and man made representations of nature that when combined, create illusion and mystery. Ever interested in the wavering spaces between culture and the natural world, I see the effects of leisure, distraction, and even melancholy in the atmosphere.
