I was Artist in Residence at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park in Shoreline, WA from November 2, 2020 to January 6, 2021. My residency project, Asynchrony: Shared experience in a time of social distancing, explored of how people can feel connected to one another through shared experiences. The residency provided me with an opportunity to engage with park visitors and expand my art practice in new ways, inspiring me to push my creative practice by creating larger scale works and experimenting with new techniques.
A portrait in time
During my Artist's Residency at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park, I created a time-lapse portrait of the place through digital painting and video. This became a central component in the final exhibit, on view in the art cottage January 2-6, 2021.
Funding for the Asynchrony project has been provided, in full or in part, by the City of Shoreline's Art Cottage Residency Program.
During the time of the residency, I continued my daily digital art practice. As of February 2021, the Daily Art Habit series consists of over one thousand pieces.

What is the Daily Art Habit?
The Daily Art Habit started in May 2018 as a simple challenge to myself, born from a need to lean and grow out of a transitional period in my life. It's become empowering and transformational.
How is the art made?
I work digitally on an iPad Pro using and Apple Pencil and digital painting/drawing apps. I love working this way and believe these tools are the reason I've become an artist again.
Where's the rest of it?
Because I create every day, I have over a thousand of pieces of art I could show. Instead of showing it all, I've curated my favorite work into rotating exhibitions and collections to share.
