Winter is okay as long as there are hot springs. #winterisokay  I spent yesterday afternoon in 4WD exploring the side streets and alleyways of Garden City.
 #fieldofficetypography  Reminiscing about summer road tripping and car camping while we dig the car out of the snow. #fieldofficetravel
 Lovely afternoon studio visit to this magical place with a view of the horses out the far windows and chickens peering in at us through the french doors on the other side.  Studio. #fieldofficethumbnails
 #fieldofficethumbnails  Walking and walking. #fieldofficesnow
 The starter's having a little vacation in the fridge after I Imposed a post-holiday moratorium on bread baking. #fieldofficekitchen  Happy Holidays, friends! #fieldofficesnow
 Favorite 2016 moment: #8 aka impromptu car picnic with the animal at the beach. Happy New Year, friends. ❤️️  Solo dusk stroll with this fella.
 I've never been a snow person, but the white version of this scene is winning me over. #fieldofficetravel #fieldofficesnow  Officially a white Christmas in #Boise. #fieldofficesnow
 More from Garden City. ✨  #fieldofficethumbnails

For over a decade, my studio has worked with gallerists, curators, consultants, and interior designers to place my work in corporate and private collections, hotels, and commercial interiors.

My work depicts landscapes that are a combination of physical and virtual places. I am interested in relationships between the natural and built environments as well as places that are in transition in the way they are used and thought about. The process of making my work involves collecting imagery from a number of sources including my own drawings and photographs as well as images I find on the Internet, in advertisements, movies, and historical archives.

My studio—aka the Field Office—has operated out of Berlin, Los Angeles, Marfa, and Minneapolis. I recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest and now call Portland home.

After completing my MFA in visual studies, I moved to Berlin where I lived and worked for six years. It was there that I founded the Field Office as an expat blog that focused on the intersection of travel, place, and time. Eventually it grew into my studio and the flag under which I fly a number of creative projects.

Recently I relocated to Portland, where I work as an illustrator and surface designer. As the Field Office, I continue to take on projects that tell stories about travel, visual culture, and living a creative life using photography, video, illustration, and animation.

I’ve been a speaker and visiting artist at Gustavus College and the Santa Fe Institute of Arts and am a recent recipient of an Artist Initiative Grant from the state of Minnesota. As an exhibiting artist, my work has been shown nationally and placed in numerous corporate and private collections.

My projects include a series of video diaries from Berlin and a year-long visual survey of Minnesota’s natural and built landscapes funded by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. My work has been featured on the Instagram blog, VSCO Grid, Apartment Therapy, and New American Paintings.
