I am a graphic designer and copywriter by day, and a mixed-media artist by night (and weekends). My work has included a Downtown Boise traffic box; a grant-funded public sculpture that operates as a neighborhood lending library; numerous contributions to art fundraisers, such as Valentines for AIDS; selected cover artist for the Boise Weekly; and art pieces in a small number of private collections or ownership. I aspire to expand my abilities in printmaking, which ties historically with the field of graphic design. I am a Boise native, a Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate of Oregon State University, and, along with my husband, am raising a son and a daughter who both practice their art at home and in school.
