I am a painter and printmaker living in northern California. Natural history and the environment are strong influences in my process. My current project involves the concept of “creature” and the ways it relates to, interacts with and informs the concept of “wildness.” My work explores the potentials of large-scale printmaking, including woodblock relief, linocut relief, and reductive monotype printmaking. I also enjoy working with watercolors and acrylics. Much of my work is inspired by my travels through Europe and the sub-arctic. I find myself particularly inspired by the flora and fauna of northern California.
I graduated from Scripps College in 2012 with a B.A. in Environmental Writing, and I have been based largely in northern California since. My work has been exhibited in Arc Gallery and SOMArts Gallery in San Francisco, the Isabelle Percy West Gallery at the California College of the Arts in Oakland, Gallery Route One in Point Reyes, and the Petaluma Arts Center in Petaluma. I have been published by Grist Magazine, the Inverness Almanac, the West Marin Review, and Graphic Impressions. I have been an artist in residence at the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley California and at Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts in Wyoming. I am an active member of the Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art, the National Women’s Caucus for Art, the California Society of Printmakers and Southern Graphics Council International.
