I am a fine artist with affection for narrative content, for materials, line and technique.
I make drawings, books and videos with characters and stories in mind, often drawing
on my Pacific Northwest roots. I also turn wooden bowls, this, printmaking and the
occasional cross-stitch, are ways to indulge an abiding interest in process.

My work has been shown across the country in Los Angeles, Seattle,
New York, Baltimore, Idaho, and Virginia.
