About my Design Work

I am currently taking a break from design work while I work on a book about living simply.

Painting and Printmaking

My paintings were published in New American Paintings Issue 121. My painting, Casitas, is a part of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation collection. My work has been shown locally and nationally alongside a variety of artists, including Ed Ruscha, Matt Groening and Mark Ryden.

I designed the Pocket Press and developed 2 new unique press beds for this unique printmaking set up; the Magic Pressbed and the Registration Pressbed for printing reduction linocuts without a traditional press. My printmaking press has been featured in Pressing Matters Magazine and on Creative Bloq. I have taught printmaking workshops for Skillshare and at Ohio State University Urban Arts Space. And one time, actor Charlie Day purchased one of my hand tinted etchings.

I hold a degree in drawing and painting from the University of North Texas College of Visual Art and Design. Between paintings, my passion for the arts and sustainability energized me to launch several businesses. Art Cricket LA helped regular people collect art by local artists, Get Local was a way for Angelenos to shop locally online, and my pocket press venture is still in operation as a side hustle. I find graphic design to be at the intersection of my love for entrepreneurial ventures and art.
