Introduction Growing up in Fircrest, Washington, influenced my career. At an early age I remember my mom took oil painting classes and was always creating. If not painting, you could find her making Christmas trees out of old Reader’s Digest magazines or tole painting discarded antiques, while my older brother sketched elaborate drawings and dabbled in film animation. My dad was a artist in his own rite, although he wouldn’t admit it. As a civil engineer, he had no problem coming up with well-planned construction projects at home, always well executed and embraced by the family. But I think family vacations infuenced me the most by exposing me to new ideas and places. I have plenty of photos and journals of adventurues made by my dad and grandparents. I’ve always enjoyed these documented treasures and have joined that nostalgia in my designs. My art is an extension of the desire to document and to share memories.
