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. The 2017 donation was made to the Natural Resource Defense Council.
