I discovered I was a visual artist after I'd already graduated from college with my degree in music performance. But you don't always get it right on the first guess, right?

Mostly I work with hand carved and printed linocuts. I usually carve a single key block, print it with black ink, and paint the color afterward with watercolor or gouache. I've also been incorporating relief printmaking and hand made stamps into mixed media images lately. I love finding a way to combine paint, collage, ink, drawing and stamps into one picture.

I live in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and I’m influenced by the beautiful landscape around me. One of my favorite things to do is walk with my husband, our daughter, and our dog around this pretty valley.

In 2016 I created the artwork for a t-shirt and poster for ReTree Steamboat, a tree planing event organized by the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council. Here is an article in the Steamboat Today with info about the event and a photo of volunteers wearing the t-shirts.

I was commissioned to create the 2016 Winter Carnival poster for Steamboat Springs. Here is an article in the Steamboat Today about the poster, and here is an interview on the Steamboat Sotheby's blog.

Also, I received a grant from the Steamboat Springs Arts Council for continued work on my picture book, Our Home. You can read the article here in the Steamboat Today.
