I am an artist living and working in beautiful Portland, Oregon.

I like to think of my work as geography run amok. I take my eye for the physical landscape and shape it into slightly surreal pieces that are touched with emotion. The shapes and patterns I see around me influence the spirits and topography of these ethereal dreamscapes: the curves of mountains and rivers, the density of clouds, the movement of limbs and leaves and hair.

I work primarily in gouache, though I do explore with ripped paper, oil pastel, acrylic and pastel. I use gouache in diverse ways, from thin washes to smudges of paint straight from the tube. I often apply wax paper to the wet paint and leave it on until it is dry, leaving behind unpredictable patterns that I can embellish.
