While most of the work I make is illustrative, oil painting and printmaking are both mediums that I explore as well. The past couple of years I've worked on painting portraits with intricate backgrounds. Each background lending some insight to the character of the the portrait. I draw the portrait first using pencil, then draw the background around it. I find the process to be quite meditative, challenging and a nice break from my illustrative work.
My illustrative work is mostly done in gouache paint and pencil. I focus on a lot of Portland based images which I then turn into greeting cards, postcards and prints. Participating in Portland Open Studios allows me to show people a different side to my work.
