I’m pleased to announce my new show “Inbetween” on display at Brooks Dental Studio in Tacoma, WA. The work will be up from August through December with an opening on August 16th, 2018 from 5 to 7pm.
This year I’ve had the opportunity to work along with our upper school (high school) peer mentor students in developing a suicide prevention awareness campaign. In collaboration with our peer mentor students training their fellow students in suicide prevention awareness, we collaborated with the graphic design course to develop a poster, social media post, and pocket card. Utilizing the design process, the student designers developed several solutions to propose to their peer mentor clients. From that pool of solutions we narrowed the field down to the image above and expanded it to serve all three of our needs.
I’m very excited that today we launch the social media campaign and will hang the posters around campus. Next Monday, our peer mentors will be train their fellow students and the pocket card will be handed out as support material to reference as needed.

As I’m rounding up my 9th year living in the city of Tacoma, I’m happy to call this region of the country and the city of destiny my home! As one of my fellow Tacoman, Tom Llewellyn, wrote today in the TNT, Art Saved Tacoma and the project below is a small bit of my contribution to the vibrant arts scene of Tacoma. I hope you get a chance to see or find one of these creations out in the wild!
I’m very humbled and excited to announce that I have been nominated for the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation Art Award for 2014! Tacoma is an amazing community and I’m proud to be a part of the creative scene here. There are many other amazing Tacoma artist nominated and you can check out the list here.
I was also highlighted on the GTCF blog the other day. Check out the post here.
I guess we will see what the news will be in June, but for now I’m just excited to be a part of this small group of people making Tacoma a great place to live!
