About

Painting in the Arctic, Acrylics, Prints, and Colorful Decor

I’m a painter, graphic designer, and illustrator working out of Fairbanks, Alaska. My work is primarily about color and energy and usually depicts animals in an anthropomorphic light combined with iterative marks meant to suggest the natural world.

    Owner, Maker, Artist

    I'm a painter living and working in the far North. My artwork contains elements of folk art, outsider art, and a great deal of color. Animals feature prominently in most of my work and intense color brings a sense of energy into any space.

Production partners

  • The Print Shop

    Hendersonville, NC

    I use multiple printing partners to help me produce high quality items featuring my artwork. MWW does on demand printing and manufacturing. All images are mine and mine alone, created by hand in my studio.
