 Fine Art, illustration & craft 

  in the columbia river gorge, pnw, Usa . 


Hello there!

I'm an artist and educator based in the lovely and majestic White Salmon, WA, in the Columbia River Gorge, just outside Portland, OR, USA. 


I spend my days guiding preschool and kindergarten 

students towards a love of learning, a love of the Earth, a love of oneself and love for one another. My time in the studio focuses on telling stories that feel important to tell, using my illustration practice to expand my understanding of the beauty, complexity and interconnection of life on this amazing planet. I am driven to share this reverence with my viewers as a plea for preservation and protection of our Mother Earth for our children and all generations to come. 

My work is steeped in a deep fascination with forgotten stories, luminous dreamscapes, and the strength found in being truly vulnerable. I am compelled to capture a tiny glimpse of the immense beauty and promise this life offers. We must keep creating and cultivating beauty all around us, seeking it out and sharing it with all beings. 


I have illustrated educational material, children's books, ID and brands, logos, and tattoos. Most recently, I've  created coloring pages, which I provide to school programs free of charge.

My work is on display in private & public collections around the world, including South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Guatemala,

Germany, France, Spain, Sweden, Russia and Japan.
