In addition to teaching art at SVC, I have a busy career as a painter and a public artist. My work is represented by galleries in Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Copenhagen, Singapore, and Munster, Germany. My work was featured on the cover of the August 2015 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine. To view the article, click on the link below. I paint murals around the country, and I teach a mural painting class at SVC. Sign up for Art 201 or 202 Spring quarter if you want to participate in the contemporary street art phenomenon!

As for my own experience as a student, I loved being a part of college art programs and I cherish the inspiring friends I met there. In the art department at SVC, you will find that same great feeling of comeraderie and joy for the arts. The schools I attended were the University of Washington, where I earned my MFA in painting, and Cornish College of the Arts, where I earned my BFA in Illustration, graduating magna cum laude.

Here is the link to the feature in Juxtapoz!
