I am based near Portland, Oregon. My work draws direct inspiration from the Pacific Northwest coast as well as my background in California, Kauai, and Down East Maine.
I often incorporate natural and reclaimed materials into a wide range of work including watercolor and encaustic painting, mixed media sculpture, functional porcelain ware, and interactive installation art. My traveling installations include Ghost Net Landscape, a collaborative community installation transforming reclaimed fishing gear into art, and 1000 Moons, an art installation and grief process in handmade paper. Since 2005, I have practiced a regular schedule of plein air (outdoor) landscape painting in addition to my studio work. Spending this intense, creative time on location creates a strong bond with the landscape and a wonderful memory of the day.
I have been a practicing artist for over twenty-five years, and a full-time professional artist since 2016. My award-winning work is included in public and private collections around the United States.

Commissions will open in July 2023. Contact me to reserve your space.
Commission a custom watercolor landscape, or a painting of your home! I can work from your photos, or one of my existing paintings. I will be in contact with you every step of the way, sending images of the initial pencil sketch and final painting for approval.
I can begin work with a 50% deposit. The entire process can take as little as two weeks for a small, simple painting, or several months for a larger painting with adjustments made along the way based on your feedback.
50% deposit required to reserve your space. The deposit is non-refundable once I begin painting based on your approval of the initial sketch.
Your painting will be completed using the highest quality professional-grade materials, including Arches watercolor paper and Winsor & Newton lightfast watercolor paints. These archival materials ensure that your painting, properly cared for, will last a lifetime.
