I am currently at work on a book of poetry, Echoes and Anthems. I hold a MFA in fine art and a BA in both Art and English/Creative Writing, and have spent my professional life as a fine artist, graphic/web designer, and new media writer. I am a participant in Port Townsend Writers’ Conferences, Gateless Writing Retreats, Northwest Writers’ Weekends, and Olympia Poetry Network Open Mics.

I’m also currently exploring painting abstracted landscapes in oils, after about a decade working with realism.

I like to explore the possibilities of art, the elasticity of language, the consciousness of self, and the observation and celebration of the wild. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my musician husband, a Maine Coon cat, and twenty bookshelves. 

Exhibits, Publications, & Resumé—My work. In bullet points.

Client List—Not everyone, but most everyone.

ON WRITING :: I write more or less continuously. This year, mostly poetry. Online or off, laptop or foolscap. Open mic or writing workshops. It’s all so much fun.

ON PAINTING :: Art and writing have served as bedrock for both my personal expression and work life. I’ve been making art since I was a child, and I paint in oils because it makes my heart sing. Simple as that.

ON DESIGN :: My approach to design is simple: make it beautiful, with the spark to ignite business. Balancing inventive thinking with interesting design produces visuals that deliver. I have represented clients in California’s Napa Valley, Hawaii’s visitor industry, healthcare, the arts, and national premium food businesses.
