When walking across a sandy beach, shells sting our feet. Still we continue, despite the discomfort, the underlying anxiety, the fleeting imagination that something bad is going to happen. A cut perhaps. Every shell, every prickly sensation, every disturbance, the sand between our toes.     The…
When I work, I always embrace the idea of living “a mindful life.” The source of my inspiration is Zen philosophy, specifically: impermanence, insubstantiality, and dissatisfaction or suffering—referred to in Japanese as Mujo, Muga, and Ku, respectively. Through my artistic exploration, I aim to…

Central to my work is a fascination with the interstitial; spaces charged with the energy of possibility like the tiny spark of static electricity that jumps from finger to a doorknob. In these overlooked gaps are dream-like worlds populated by our ghosts and their many shadows, made solid for an…
My paintings are based on environments I observe through traveling around the Northwest: old mining towns, farms, delta cities, rural communities, and sometimes simply landscapes; what all these places have in common is the visible patina of history.   The loneliness of these environments has led…
