I am a multidisciplinary artist who works in painting, mixed media, photography, book arts and calligraphy. Originally from a small community in Eastern Oregon, I always dreamed of living in a larger city and pursuing my lifelong dream of becoming a working artist. Throughout my working career I've owned my own sign and antique business and worked several jobs in the graphic design and sign industry. I moved to the Portland area in 2010 to finish my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and graduated in 2013. My recent work explores my personal experience with domestic violence through calligraphic writing and found books that are cut, burned and stitched into scuptural forms. My work has been shown at Littman White Galleries, Ford Gallery, 23 Sandy Gallery and most recently at A6 Gallery in Bend, Oregon.
