Born and raised in the countryside near Portland, Oregon, I have always been interested in nature, art and design. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1985 and worked for Portal Publications in graphic design in San Francisco.
In 1992 I decided to expand my creative talents and began licensing my artwork and it has been an amazing ride since then. It is a pleasure to come into my studio each day and thoroughly enjoy the work that I do. I especially like to collaborate with the product development teams at my licensees and create products that are on-trend, beautiful and functional. I study trends from all over the world including color, iconography, textures and incorporate them into my collections.
