Artist Statement
The hundreds of digital tools at my fingertips allow for a portrait to become so much more than a figure posing for a picture. By using an array of graffiti murals, I aimed to capture the urban nature of this local Seattle musician.

Artist Statement
The premise of my artwork is self-portraiture . Be it a physical representation or images generated from memory, it is a window into my identity as an artist, dreamer, lover of botany, member of a community. My aim is to invoke the same nostalgic state inside others as inside myself.

Artist Statement
In this piece I try to express a feeling of exhaustion and ego, the struggle between picking your battles and knowing when to stand up for yourself.

Artist Statement
I love the look of pods. They seem so alien and secretive. The tube set cubic zirconia in this brooch signifies a secret surprise contained within the pod.

Artist Statement
In this piece I was interested in expressing how reflective surfaces respond to light and relate to the space and objects around them. I wanted to realistically depict surfaces and shapes and keep my brushstrokes lively and expressive. I was riveted by
the texture and refractions of the fish.
