I originally wanted to be a writer but moved on to painting when I found that I didn't have any stories to tell. I went to art school and filled my home with large canvases. When there was no room left I switched to printmaking and working with small bits of paper. Now, after finding a few stories, I am working in book arts and am able to do a little of everything and am enjoying connecting the circle back to the writing.
I am also a graphic designer and run the creative firm Kring Design Studio.
If you would like to be notified when I post a new piece, please let me know.
In November I will have some pieces in "The Art of Letterpress II" at The Compound Gallery in Oakland. This is a very fun gallery and will have lots of great letterpress work. In addition to regular sized exhibits they have a tiny gallery, The Admiral Dot Miniature Gallery, which is about 5" square and is viewed through a lense peephole in the wall. I am creating a special piece for this gallery and looking forward to showing it.
I have just finished a hand-painted version of Sunken Heart. It will be included in the "EcoEditions" show at the 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, OR (November 15 – December 28, 2013). I hope to have some images posted on my site soon.
