I’m an artist, printmaker, designer and compulsive creative living and working in Northern San Diego County, California.

I use my background in printmaking and figure drawing to create portraits and figurative artwork using a variety of media. My realistic drawings, along with my old woodblock prints, found images from vintage books, patterned papers or whatever else I have on hand, are painstakingly cut out, reassembled and collaged together to create sensitively rendered and surreal portraits, rich with color and detail.
