Bio: I received my M.F.A from Boise State University in 2007. I grew up in rural Idaho, but currently call Portland, Oregon home. I am a full time Art Instructor at Portland Community College where I teach courses in Basic Design, Drawing and Printmaking. My most recent studio work consists of a mixture of drawing, calligraphy, printmaking and artist books. Much of my work incorporates organs, insects and other natural forms to discuss fragility and the fleeting quality of life. An innate curiosity about the world is the driving force behind all of my work.
