I enjoy working in many different media and creating art for gift-giving, professional development, and personal use. I enjoy drawing, painting, weaving, carving, printmaking, jewelry making, sewing, and post-apocalyptic cosplay.
My inspirations come from learning to gather and weave organic materials, Lunar New Year postcard exchanges, copying artworks, historical designs, and activism.
Lunar New Year postcards
While living in Japan in 2007, several of my adult English language students gifted me hand-printed postcards for the year of the Boar. To celebrate my 36th year I created a set of Rooster postcards, followed by a Mongolian yak postcard for year of the Ox, and a snowshoe hare of the Cascade Mountain range for year of the Rabbit. Over my lifetime I plan to print postcards of all 12 animals.
I love the DIY aesthetic of screen printed patches. These prints were made for gifts, personal use, and as paid commissions.
