I was raised in Westport, Oregon, a small mill town on the Columbia River. After a four year Army enlistment, I attended Oregon State University, where I received a BFA in Fine Arts, and a BA in Graphic Design. Being stationed in Germany, and the subsequent travel oppurtunities available gave me a yearning for exploration and interaction a rural setting could not provide. After Graduation I lived in Portland, until fate landed me in San Diego.
My goal is to create work that is visually appealing, and accessible on different levels. My style is derived from an interest in children’s books; primers, comics, and stories; all the simple visual devices we use as a culture to educate and socialize ourselves. The images in their pages always left me feeling like I should be learning something, even if I didn’t comprehend the words.
