AMERICAN BUILT. MADE BY HAND. USING ONLY AUTHENTIC MATERIALS.
I am a Northwest-based, self taught mixed media artist with a bent toward recycled materials, found objects, and all things Americana. Everything you see here is made by hand, made in America, and made from authentic materials. My work is sold in fine craft galleries nationwide, in addition to custom work and site-specific commercial design. I am a member of the Country Music Association (CMA) and the American Craft Council.
With studios in both Seattle and Portland, my work reflects who I am and where I’m from. I love the West and all things associated with it. Although my reputation is as a “license plate artist,” I dabble in just about all things vintage and collectible, and find inspiration everywhere I look. I’m a regular at most of the salvage yards and antique malls dotted along Interstate-5; always scouting for old tools, rodeo posters, reclaimed hardware, soda cans, punched tin and other finds. Layering materials, mixing textures and patterns, finding the fabulous in the flawed and worn -- those are the things that make me tick -- and make my product line unique.
