Keen on art making since childhood I’m rarely without a pen and paper. I’ll take a note, draw, doodle and make little art cards to trade, give or use as studies for future work.
College life in Minnesota took me from home economics and art education to careers in interior design, creative arts and graphic design. Now, my day job as creative director at Pacific University keeps me amply busy and yet, a maker at heart, my creativity expands beyond graphic design to include watercolor, pen & ink and my newest endeavor, letterpress. Good fortune finds me married to a maker who not only is a metal artist, photographer and gardener, he also makes my presses run as they should. Lucky me.
We open our studio doors during the annual Washington County Open Studio tours, the third week in October, to prompt more art making.
Like my style? Stop by open studios or shop from here. Interested in project work? Though I freelance on a very limited basis, drop me a line ... maybe it’ll be a good fit. Oh for the love of ink on paper.
