Born in Salem Oregon, I currently live in Seattle Washington.
I lived and worked in Savannah Georgia for 11 years where I taught Foundation Studies at Savannah College of Art and Design. The Foundation Studies department at SCAD offers the beginning art classes like drawing, life drawing, color theory, and two-dimensional design, all of which I have taught, including a "scene painting" class for the production design department.
Before Savannah, I lived in Long Beach California for 9 years where I earned my MFA at California State University Long Beach and taught Drawing and Painting at various Colleges.
I lived in Seattle before that where I worked as a Scenic Artist at various organizations like Seattle Repertory Theatre, A Contemporary Theatre, and The Seattle Opera. I am thrilled to be back in Seattle!
