Artist’s Statement:  Keen on art making since childhood, I’m rarely without a pen and paper. I’ll take a note, draw, doodle and make little art cards to give away or to use as studies for future work. Opening my studio doors during the yearly tours is just the nudge I need to make more art. This year I am focusing on letterpress along with small whimsical watercolors, and as you pass through downtown Hillsboro, I’ll point out the colorful pole banners I designed for the City. Then come to our home, walk through the backyard garden and up the stairs and you’ll find me inside ready to show you how I do my work and to pass along some inspiration.
