I consider death to be a sacred rite of passage, and a part of the cycle of life.
I create eco art that has grown out of my involvement in green burial and holistic funeral movements. Specifically, I hand-paint designs onto eco cremation urns using natural pigments. It is an honor for my art to be a part of someone's end of life transition.
I live and create art in Boulder, Colorado, the homeland of the Cheyenne, Arapaho, and Ute Native peoples. I pay respect to the indigenous elders of this land, both past and present.
