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

I create hand carved and printed linocuts. Most often I carve a single key block, print it with black ink, and paint the color afterward with watercolor or gouache. I also incorporate hand made stamps into mixed media images. I love finding ways 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. 

I was also commissioned to create the 2016 Winter Carnival poster for Steamboat Springs. This was a fundraiser for the Winter Sports Club with sales benefitting young athletes. 

I was very happy to receive a grant from the Steamboat Springs Arts Council for continued work on my picture book, Our Home in the fall of 2016.
