Santa Barbara, CA

"Fine art prints of my paintings, photography, and combinations of the two inspired by the land, sea, and sky of the West Coast."
I majored in Studio Art (with a Printmaking concentration) at the University of Virginia back in the days when Ja Rule still had hits on the radio and keto eating was still called the Atkins diet. That was a while ago, and here I am still fixated on making prints! While also still doing a mediocre job at avoiding carbohydrates.

With a background in photography and graphic design (I went on to get a degree in Graphic Design from Parsons the New School for Design), and many years spent in NYC and LA, I'm very grateful to now live and operate in the small town of Santa Barbara, CA.

I moved to Santa Barbara after a chance meeting with an intuitive psychic who instructed me to set up shop in this town and start making art! I'd been contemplating a move back east at the time, and am exceptionally glad I followed her advice and put my roots down in this exceedingly beautiful beach town instead.

I absolutely love making this work and have known for as long as I can remember that making people's homes/work places feel beautiful and healing through visual art and decoration is a big part of what I came to Earth to do.

I think that if we work together, we can dream up a more beautiful world with infinitely more peace, harmony, magic, mysteries, and miracles.

More About This Creator

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"When I'm really struggling to make a creative decision, or even deciding if a piece is finished or not, I'll flip a coin. It helps me to keep moving forward so I don't get stuck laboring over a decision for too long. The coin decides!"

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"When seeing one of my pieces for the first time, I'd like people to be drawn into feeling very present, and to enjoy a sense of beauty. Much like the feeling listening to a string arrangement in a moving piece of music, or biting into the perfect piece of cheese."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"When I was first learning photography, I unexpectedly got hired by an artisanal ice cream company to be their brand photographer. I barely knew how to turn on a camera at that point, and had to learn the art of food photography on the hardest subject known to man, a rapidly melting bowl of ice cream. It mostly worked out, but I gained 8 pounds after eating the melty remains from every shoot that I felt too bad to throw away."
