Artist Statement
A lot of my work takes place outside the studio. I make drawings, videos and stop-motion animations of my looking, thinking and doing while outdoors. We move too fast throught these landscapes and don't notice enough. I try to slow down to show the viewer what we neglect to take time to see.

She is a 2008 recipient of the Contemporary Northwest Art Award from the Portland Art Museum.  In 2006 she received an Artist Trust/Washington State Arts Commision Fellowship and was recently awarded the Betty Bowen Award Finalist Prize from the Seattle Art Museum.
