New year, New studio!

2018 is here and with it comes the opening of my new studio located near my home on Bainbridge Island. I have been hard at work for the last couple months getting this new space ready and am so excited to finally open my door and invite you all in! I will be open by appointment and plan to hold open studio hours whenever possible. The space will act both as my studio as well as a gallery showcasing completed paintings and my collection of limited edition prints. My studio is located in downtown Winslow, just a short walk from the Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal, at 270 Madison Avenue South.

On Friday, January 5th, I celebrated my new space during our local First Friday Art Walk. It was truly a dream come true to welcome in so many friends, neighbors, and especially my family, and to kick off the new year in my new location! 

Please let me know if you'd like to stop by for a visit - I would love to show you around my new space! And if my open studio sign is out front, I hope you'll pop in and say hello!

Create Magazine Issue VI

My work was recently selected by Brock Brake of Athen B. Gallery for Issue VI of Create! Magazine and I'm honored to be included in this fascinating curated selection of artists - many of whom I already  admire and slew of others I'm excited to explore. 

I also had the pleasure of being interviewed for this issue and you can read the full interview here detailing a bit about my path as an artist as well as some insights about my process.

A New Print and a Visit to Minted

I'm happy to announce my 10th award winning print is now available in my limited edition print collection at Minted! 'Merge' is based on a photo I took last summer in a Pacific Northwest garden near my home on Bainbridge Island. In this painting leafy branches and cedar boughs hover above golden green and yellow painterly brushstrokes leading across the surface of a pond. This piece was selected as an Editors' Pick in the latest West Elm x Minted Art Challenge.

In other Minted related news, I was in San Francisco this past weekend and had the opportunity to visit Minted headquarters as well as the Minted Local retail store in Union Square. Both were so beautiful and inspiring! And it made my day to find my print, 'Arise', available in stock in the Minted Local shop!
