My first exhibition took place at Tulsa’s Gilcrease Museum when I was fifteen years old. My work has won various awards and has been featured in the U.K.’s Photoshop Creative Magazine. I am equally comfortable with both digital and conventional media, and my style is synthesized from a host of influences, including N.C. Wyeth, Alphonse Mucha, Patrick Nagel, Ed Ruscha, Anton Corbijn, Norman Rockwell, Tom of Finland and Hokusai. I also draw inspiration from two other lifelong sources of fascination: surf and skateboard graphics of the ’70s and ’80s, and classic album art, particularly that by the hand of California airbrush artists like Willardson, White and Palombi.
In addition to producing visual art, I’ve been a singer and performer since I was six. From 1994 to 2004, I toured internationally with my band, The Mimsies. Since 2006, I’ve found a home for my various theatrical aspirations in the San Francisco burlesque and variety circuit. Most recently, I starred in Abigail, a rock opera about the Salem witch trials. Currently, I’m working on a new musical project with my husband, Daniel Knop, due out whenever we feel it’s ready.
hard great; make art,
