I am a native Oregonian and have lived throughout the Northwest. My father, an artist, encouraged exploration in many types of mediums and mentored me as I developed my style.


I am primarily interested in form and color with my inspiration coming from a variety of sources. This includes over 30 years as owner of O’son O’riginals - graphic design.  


I have won numerous national and local awards for both graphic design and art. My past work has been represented and sold through City of Portland featured artist, Lawrence Gallery, Salishan Gift Shop, Trails End Gallery, Resort at the Mountain, Art of Nature II in the Park, and others. In 2022 I retired am now able to devote most of my creative time in the Studio at Burlwood.


I live in Sandy, Oregon on five acres filled with old growth trees and surrounded by nature's art.

I hope you enjoy my Art for Small Spaces,
