INFO

BIO

I am a multi-disciplinary visual artist with an education and background in fine art and design, and experience in 3d vfx and 3d material design. The expressive nature of my personal pieces strike a balance with the realism of my digital work. I enjoy exploring the contrasts between traditional and digital approaches, methods, and techniques. 

My interest in acrylics is how multi dimensional and expressive it can be – I love to experiment with various mediums to obtain interesting surface qualities that are often only noticeable when viewing the work in person. My paintings are often built up of many translucent layers of paint and meaning usually touching upon themes inspired from nature, the concept of duality, seen and unseen worlds, regeneration and transcendence, and the shared human condition.

I have exhibited in the Portland Metro area, Santa Monica and around the San Francisco Bay Area. My works are held in private collections in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Norway.  I am a native of Portland and received a BFA in Design from Pacific Northwest College of Art. 
I currently live and work in the Portland, Oregon area.

DESIGN

SCIENCE TAROT

A portfolio of my paintings for the Suit of Wands in the Science Tarot Project, and images from our launch party at the California Academy of Sciences.

One through ten card designs were painted using Photoshop, and the face cards were painted using acrylic mixed media on 24x36 inch canvases. For the launch party display I bound the four paintings together at the corners, and displayed on a raised central pedestal. There were also two stations with glowing light cube stands on which rested view master viewers containing the card art .
