I am an abstract artist and graphic designer based in Lawrence, Kansas.
About my artwork
My artwork is inspired by the tension between calm and chaos. I am living within the tension between the vast skies and boundless prairies of my midwestern home and the densely layered, richly textured dichotomy of my native New York. It is from within this place that my artwork emerges.
I received my BFA in Graphic Design in 1995 from Ohio University. It was years later
in San Francisco, while working in publishing, that I was first introduced to monotype printmaking in the back-room workshop of an unassuming gallery that ignited my art-making journey.
Navigating the challenges of a creative life while continuing my work as a graphic designer wouldn't be nearly as gratifying without the constant flow of chaos and hilarity that accompanies raising two young men and caring for a persneckity pug.
About my design work
I'm a designer and creative communicator with over 25 years of experience developing innovative, effective, nuanced solutions in print and digital arenas for clients in both private and public sectors.
My diverse expertise spans a broad range design work of myriad scopes and
scales. Whether producing and art directing a high-visibility, nationally distributed retail catalog or conceptualizing and fine-tuning a logo for a boutique brand, every project I lead is met with equal parts passion and precision while I simultaneously and seamlessly manage concurrent partner and collaborator needs with
confidence and grace.
