I live in the Bay Area - happily near trails, mountains, and sea. I have practiced art since I was little, studied it in school, and received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Southern California. Trail running and art are two ways that I enjoy the beautiful world we live in.
Thanks for checking out my art, and I hope to see you on the trails!
ABOUT MY ART
I am currently focusing on original digital works of art. I occasionally incorporate linocut prints and pencil sketches.
Giclée Printing: All of my prints are giclée prints, unless otherwise noted. Giclée is a French word meaning "that which is sprayed or squirted." This style of inkjet printing produces a higher quality product with a longer lifespan than standard inkjet printers. The ink is pigment-based, the resolution of the image is high, and the paper used must be archival. Giclée prints have a lifespan of 100 years or more if cared for properly. In addition, giclée printing saves on energy resources, water, and reduces the use of chemicals, making it a very environmentally-friendly printmaking process.
Limited Edition Prints: Because I am continually creating new designs and exploring new printing papers and techniques, most of my prints will be limited. Each print will be signed, dated, and numbered.
Custom Prints: I am not currently accepting custom orders.
THE GREATER GOOD
I donate 5% of my profits to nonprofit organizations supporting environmental and wildlife conservation. 2015 and 2016 donations were made to the Bay Area Open Space Council.
