About Me

I'm an artist and freelance illustrator/graphic designer based in the Pacific Northwest. I am formally trained as a painter, but for the past few years have been working more in fibers. My embroidery hoop art borrows from the language of painting and drawing, and my paintings and sketches are heavily influenced by my interest in traditional handcrafts, such as cross-stitching and weaving. This mixing and juxtaposing is a process that illuminates and strains the boundaries of art categories, and sometimes can produce unexpected gifts.
