I am a visual artist and professor living in Lynnwood, Washington, USA. I work with graphite, ink, watercolor, and collage, making work that explores place, landscape, and the fluid and complex connection between humans and the natural world. I also teach art at Gage Academy in Seattle and at DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond. I love working with upcoming artists and am constantly inspired by their passion and dedication to the purpose of art in our world. Over the past few years, I have started drawing and painting animals from around the world. Working with the Invicta Wildlife Fund has been a wonderful way for me to support our shared mission of conservation. I hope that my ink wild dog drawing will help spread awareness and compassion for these remarkable animals.
