TUMALO ART COMPANY:
The energy of water resonates deep within us. It connects us to nature and stirs our souls. Water nourishes and cleanses our bodies and spirits. It is the essence of life and permeates everything. This new collection of work explores the power, energy and movement of water flowing through rivers, lakes, and seas — and our souls.

OLD MILL DISTRICT
I had the distinct pleasure to create the signature artwork, "Winter Is Here" for the Old Mill District Winter Campaign in my beautiful hometown of Bend, Oregon. Setting a festive tone for winter in our neighborhood, the art is featured on banners lining the streets, the magical background at SantaLand, holiday ornaments and the Winter Guide. The original is on view at Tumalo Art Company through December. Click here to read more about the project.

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 7, 2020
One of the ways I stay inspired and refuel my creativity is by taking an artist retreat. A favorite destination is the Oregon Coast. There is something about salty air, sand and ocean that is so restorative. This is a quick video I made while on my last retreat to share a few thoughts about taking care of your creative spirit and I talk a little about the pieces I was working on while I was there. Thanks for watching : )
