Let's pretend that everything we have seen was real.

I paint, write and draw about the intersection of water history and domestic life. I work on site, and in a tiny, old greenhouse studio in my backyard in Oregon. I was raised in Western Colorado; Lastwater was the name of our favorite drinking water source. In 1995, I enrolled at Pacific Northwest College of Art and, with my family, have mostly stuck around Portland.

Photographic reference is limited to historical details and commissioned collaborations (such as illustration projects or portraits where the sitter is unavailable).
