I love hands-on crafts, printmaking, drawing, and painting, whether its children’s books, comics or crankies (hand-cranked illustrated scrolls set to music!).

I grew up in the wooded hills of a Pennsylvania river valley in a family full of cultural contradictions. Commercial art school and university fine arts programs provided skills to work as an artist. But living in beautiful places is wildly inspiring…Washington, Oregon, Alaska, and the Catskills of New York, and now home in the Pacific Northwest where I am surrounded by music and family in our hand-built cedar house.
