bio + cv

I have made my way in the world as a studio artist and a designer in the field of public art.

In the studio, in addition to drawing, painting, and making objects, I use a clay printing technique that I have developed and refined. I carve the surface of a clay slab, then print with oil-based inks.

My work has been shown nationally in galleries and is in diverse collections such as MICROSOFT and the Fundacion Altos de Chavon in the Dominican Republic. I have created public artworks for libraries, hospitals, parks, light rail, and public utility facilities in Washington, Oregon, California, Minnesota and Texas. The overlapping worlds of nature and human habitation on earth is what interests me, particularly the delicate, off kilter moment we currently reside in.
