I am an artist and educator based in Oregon. My work explores light, combining contemporary and historic processes to push the bounds of conventional photography. My work has been exhibited internationally and is featured in private, public, and corporate collections.
Collectors of my artwork include NASA, Conrad Hilton Hotel, Kaiser Permanente hospitals, UC Davis Medical Center, Mesa Verde National Park, University of Utah, Silvan Ridge Winery, Deschutes Brewery, and many more. My artwork has been featured on Billboards across the United States, television commercials, and television shows, including The Big Bang Theory, Two Broke Girls, Scandal, Portlandia, and more. In addition to numerous recognitions and awards, I was granted a US patent for the process by which I create my art.
I began art studies at a young age and have been experimenting with art processes and media ever since. I hold a Master's Degree in Education with Art Credential from Eastern Oregon University, a Bachelor's Degree in Art from University of Oregon, and an Associate's Degree in Photography from Modesto Junior College.
I live in Bend, Oregon with my son. I am an art professor at Central Oregon Community College and a reiki master. Having spent extensive time traveling, I have been influenced by the ancient in the jungles of Brazil and by the avant-garde in the jungles of Tokyo.
