I was born in the Chicago area.  Although I'll  always hold a special place in my heart for the buzzing industrial humanity of the Big City, my recent path has meandered further and further into the Rural, and sometimes even the Wilderness.   l now live/work on a small organic farm just outside Portland, OR and run an Etsy shop called The Far Woods with my sister, Nina.  Most of my work is pen & ink, gouache, collage, linocut and wood.  I have always loved to sew, but I've recently started to hand quilt - without formal instruction, using just intuition and freeform sewing - and I've fallen in love all over again.

I am currently available for freelance work in illustration & design as well as quilt & portrait commissions.
