I am the owner of a small business: DP Printing Special Edition Inc., & Creative Space in Tacoma (Midland, WA). DP Printing was started in 1943, and I purchased it in 1988. In 2003, I moved my company from Portland, OR to Tacoma, WA to be closer to family.
For work, I do graphic design, desktop publishing, research and printing. I draw, paint, and create unique art items from recycled materials.
My passion is "Upcycling" the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value. This phrase was first coined in the book - Cradle to Cradle, by McDonough and Braungart.
My work is on display at my shop located at: 315 99th Street East; Tacoma, WA. One storefront is a gallery space that I share from time to time with other artists who wish to display their work (free of charge based on the phantom gallery program). The other is my private studio / business.
