My first adventures with printmaking involved potatoes, a razor blade, and acrylic paint. But even working that low-tech, I knew I'd discovered the best thing in the whole world, relief prints. Now I mostly carve linocuts that I print by hand, and often paint with watercolor. 

I've had the opportunity to create work for Friends of the Yampa, The Yampa Valley Sustainability Council, The Bud Werner Library, Steamboat Sotheby's and the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club as well as private clients. My prints and greeting cards have been featured in many galleries and gift shops and I am represented by Pine Moon Fine Art in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

This summer I finished a mural for Friends of the Yampa, a non-profit whose mission is to protect and enhance the environmental and recreational integrity of the Yampa River. You can see many photos showing the mural progress on my Yampa Is Wild Mural page. I painted on polytab, a strong paper that was attached to the building after the mural was complete. This allowed me to work inside instead of directly on the building, and about 120 community members helped paint and otherwise assist with the mural. Iā€™m thrilled to have been part of such a big group project creating something for Steamboat Springs featuring the Yampa River and Northwest Colorado!
