I am an artist, a poet,and a poetry publisher. Feel free to click around on the links to see what I do all day. I add new images to this site often—every week, or so, like a blog. Comments are always welcome (see "About Egress Studio" page). Below is a brief list of what you'll find on the pages of this site.
About the Main Page Links
Art Gallery: As an artist, I enjoy working with assemblage, paper-making, pen & ink, watercolor painting, and a several other art techniques. As an artist, I often find satisfaction working outside of my comfort levels, and constantly learning new skills, which increases my knowledge and expertise. The act of creating art in this way is a continual source of gratification and contentment.
The Bookstore: It's a pleasure for me to publish beautiful books by Washington State poets. The latest publications are limited editions. The layout, illustrations, printing, and assembly production—which includes sewing, trimming, gluing, scoring, and folding to put each book together—all happens inside Egress Studio.
On the Bookstore page, you will discover a link for poetry submissions to Egress Studio Press. I publish handmade, limited-edition books by Washington State poets. Egress Studio Press publishes one or two books a year. I'm trying to get that figure up to four books a year, but, as you might suspect, handmade books take a little longer to make.
About Egress Studio: If you go to this link, you'll find specific background information about Egress Studio.
About Other Links
My Resume and Artist Statement: Links to my resume and artist statement are above my photo on the upper right hand column of this page. My education, skills, awards, public events, and more, are shared on the Resume page. My vision as an artist, poet, and poetry publisher are on the Artist Statement page.
Social Media: The links at the bottom of every page connect with several social media, including my blog, my Facebook and Tumblr pages, and Behance Portfolio.
Behance Portfolio is a portion of my portfolio that shows the process of several projects. The link [here], and below in the bottom margin of this website's pages, will take you there. Every once in a while, I'll upload more projects with details about how they were completed.
I encourage you to return to this site often, as new images and information continue to be added on a regular basis.
