I am the creative trouble maker who started Two Tables Press in 2011 with two tables and a small etching press. I love making images and books using recycled materials. I have an BFA and MFA in Fine Arts. I am also a art educator, photography assistant and meteorite spotter and cat herder. My secret skill is an odd ability to recognize celebrity voice overs.

I am the in-house art critic, paper weight and gravity tester. While I reluctantly test of static electricity, I do enjoy making biscuits, chasing string, and diving under carpets. My secret skill is ignoring all my other toys to play with a freshly crumpled Post-It note.
