As a young, sixth-generation Oregonian raised in a tiny town on the Northern Oregon Coast, Portland’s siren call was too great to resist. As soon as I was old enough to live on my own I packed my bags and headed for “The Big City”. I have been living and creating in this city I love for over 25 years; it is just as enchanting as it was the first time I visited… Portland is my Muse.
I make a home here with my fantastically Muppet like husband and the beatifically angst wrapped enigma that is my son. Our extraordinarily zany Cockapoo, Mr. Doo-dah-day, and the aptly named, Miss Calamity Jane Kitteh Cat, are gracious enough to share a home with us.
As is the case with most creatives, my professional and artistic passions are abundant. Whether you are interested in my copywriting and design work; mixed media artworks, fiber art creations, creative writing, or podcasts, consider this website your invitation into my magic-sprinkled, colorful world.
My art is primarily works of mixed media sculpture, collage, and assemblage done on canvas and in shadow boxes. Recently I have been playing with ways to incorporate my love of fiber in my mixed media art. I love and am excited by learning new things and am always more than willing to perform bold, occasionally bordering on sadistic experimentation in my artwork… I am usually able accept catastrophic failures as lessons learned.
