Methow Valley, Washington
The Cascade Range, that rugged spine which divides the Northwest’s rainy coast from its dry, glacier-gouged plateau, maintains a deeply emblematic place within me. This is where I did my growing up; in a rural community at the blurry edge of wilderness. My practice is built upon a continued fascination with wild spaces and the human communities skirting them. Most of all, I am interested in how physical movement through wilderness seems intimately connected with internal exploration of the self.
In June of 2014 I received my MFA from the University of Oregon. Currently, I am teaching printmaking and drawing full-time at the university, making new work, and exploring the Oregon wilds.
