I’m great. I’m an artist, teacher, native Oregonian, beer drinker, cat lover, wayfarer and wanderer. My left eye is lazy, I stick my tongue out when I smile, and I cannot for the life of me figure out the stove top diagrams. I love summer, miss the rain when it’s gone and am transfixed by the quietness of snow…
I have always loved puzzles. I like to sift through all the pieces, analyzing their parts, and take immense satisfaction in seeing how they all fit together. For me, a photograph and a concept is an elaborate puzzle–a puzzle that puts me in remote landscapes at dusk, wandering through antique stores, building in the wood shop, sewing a new costume, and recently, a return to hand-drawn illustration.
My imagery is not meant to be viewed small, as I have an affinity for detail and vast, sweeping landscapes. I create these large prints through an extensive “stitching” process in Photoshop that requires a custom-built computer, a beast I lovingly nicknamed Thor.
To see these works in the flesh, please join us in the gallery, opening night for our New Artists Show.
