I am a graphic designer, illustrator and artist living and working in Oregon's Willamette Valley. I started a letterpress printing business, Blue Camas Press in 2012. I have also been working as a freelance illustrator and designer for the last two years. I was a high school art teacher for thirteen years until 2014, when I decided to make a career shift and focus completely on my design and illustration work.
In my creative work, I use primarily printmaking, painting, and collage as well as digital work. I specialize in botanical subjects, having drawn a great deal of inspiration from the farm where I have a studio space. This space is where I keep my letterpress, an 1896 Chandler & Price platen press. With this press, I create cards, and prints for sale, and also do custom letterpress printing projects. A wide selection of my cards and prints are available at Studio 262 in downtown Corvallis, and I also teach classes and private art lessons from this location.
