About the Artist

I am a painter and mixed media collage artist who strives to find balance between two very different lifestyles. Dividing my time between the urban environment of Seattle and an isolated community in the North Cascade Mountains imparts visual tension to my richly textured work. The structure for this work comes from an early career as an architect; the content from my recent career as a National Park backcountry ranger. I use structural sensibilities such as form, bold line, strong value and vibrant hue to engage the viewer; but it is the earthy content which inspires further and lasting reflection.
