Growing up in Southern Oregon, I spent many hours in my father’s mechanic shop learning the basics of building and gaining comfort with "dangerous tools". Although I never suspected that dirt under my nails would become a hallmark of studio life years later, experiencing the world hands-on directly with him was integral to my creative development.
I graduated with honours from Marylhurst University in Portland, Oregon at the ripe age of 40, with an interdisciplinary degree in art and psychology.
Steel is my main medium of expression. I have worked with many materials in both 2D and 3D, and have worked for over 30 years in graphic design, beginning pre-computer.
My metal studio process is a balance of construction and deconstruction as I focus on the forces of growth and decay that are constantly co-creating the world. The natural world continues to be my greatest instructor and inspiration.
