painted map of Hillsboro Oregon
Watercolor and Colored Pencil 18” x 24”

While I’ve been looking back to stories from thirty years ago, I’ve also become curious about what it means to be an artist where I live now. I’ve lived here longer than any other place, so I’ve been thinking about how it influences the work I make now.

My trees are influenced by the amazing oaks that sit in the middle of the farmers fields. Beyond that, I wasn’t intentionally exploring what is around me.

This map is the first piece that turns my focus to where I am in Hillsboro Oregon. We’ll see where it takes me next.
