I was raised in an art collecting family in the seventies & eighties in Denver, where I studied art in the public schools, at the University of Denver’s Youth Art Program & at the Art Students League of Denver. In 1995 I graduated with a BA from the Evergreen State College and studied at Anderson Ranch Arts Center. I have also studied fine art restoration with Andolsek Restoration and prehistoric pottery restoration with Schenck Southwest. In 2019 I received an MFA from the Double Standard Institute of the Arts.


My work is in private collections around the US, at the Western Washington Cancer Treatment Center and the Lama Foundation. My paintings have been shown in California, Washington, New Mexico, Colorado, Wisconsin, Oregon & Madrid, Spain. My street art has been exhibited in Barcelona, Spain, Texas, Colorado, Albuquerque, Santa Fe & Espanola.


I live and work in the high desert at 8000 feet in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains.
