I am a graphic designer, illustrator and artist living and working in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. I started a letterpress printing business, Blue Camas Press in 2012. I have also been working as a freelance illustrator and designer for the last four years. I was a high school art teacher for thirteen years until 2014, when I decided to make a career shift and focus completely on my design and illustration work.
In my creative work, I use primarily printmaking, painting, and collage as well as digital work. Natural and botanical subjects are my specialty. I own an 1896 Chandler & Price platen letterpress. With this press, I create cards, and prints for sale, and also do custom letterpress printing projects. A wide selection of my cards and prints are available at The Arts Center Gift Shop, and at First Alternative Co-op, where I currently work as a graphic designer.
Graphic design & illustration clients include: Corvallis & Albany Farmers’ Market, Vivacity Spirits, Benton Soil & Water Conservation District, and the Willamette Valley Symphony.
