I was born in Yakima, Washington and moved to Portland at a young age. I studied art and architecture at Portland State University and worked in related fields. For the last several years I have painted full time.
I paint with acrylic paint on canvas with Sumi ink, charcoal, pencil and oil pastel. I also have the ability to paint backwards with acrylic on glass and have developed my own unique techniques in order to accomplish some unusual effects.
Lately I have been exploring collage by using photo copies of my own work, ripping and rearranging bits and pieces in order to make new pieces. With these works I add charcoal, inks, acrylic, and oil pastel.
Color drives me. With that, you can see my work at the following galleries.
