My work has been presented at such venues as Plush You at Schmancy in Seattle, Luv-able & Hug-able at Gallery Hanahou in New York, Double Punch in San Francisco, as well as having appeared in BUST magazine.

I live in a lovely hundred year old home in Portland, OR, with my husband, young daughter, ancient house rabbit, and ridiculous wee mutt of a pup.
