I am a place-based artist in Portland, OR. I paint abstract expressionist art and write and record music rooted in place. Whether in my own neighborhood or in cities around the world, I examine and experience a particular environment and create place and people-specific art and music.

I recognized my ability to produce place-based visual art while creating for a client in Mexico City. Using my intuition and a palette knife, I was able to capture the colors and essence of the neighborhoods I visited, resulting in unique custom pieces specific to that particular environment.

As a songwriter, I found the more specific I was in writing, the more personal it was, the more universal the appeal. Most of my songs come from conversations and experiences in own neighborhood. I've had the opportunity to write songs for personal occasions like weddings and anniversaries, as well as for organizations and faith communities. I have performed and shared music through recording, events and tours. 

There are so many more conversations and creative collaborations to be had around place-based art. By participating and supporting my work, I hope to be able to fund production and distribution and inspire local, neighborhood specific creativity.
