A Love Letter to the Palouse

Calendar Year (18x12 each)

The Palouse makes me feel like I’m in a movie, whether in the blinding light of summer or the icy frost of winter. I am constantly entranced with this setting, stopping in the parking lot of Winco to take a picture of the sunset, or to watch someone else do the same. Some of my fondest memories will always be getting off the night shift and grabbing a coffee before going to see the sunrise with my best friends. I’ve driven out day and night just to be in the Palouse as much as possible, to see it from every angle at every time of day; and no matter how many times I do, it never gets old. Every time I come back with pictures to show and stories to tell, and in the background of it all are rolling hills of every color.

This is all to say that I really like it here. The people I’ve met, the experiences I’ve had, and the awe inspiring views that have encompassed the last five years of my life have all been part & parcel of my evolution as a designer and artist. I can identify within myself the same cycles of growth and change that I’ve witnessed in the landscape over the course of days, months, and years. In this body of work I’ve used the aspects of design and digital process that I enjoy most—simple shapes & precise color choice—to craft a visual love letter to the Palouse.
