I'M CALI. NICE TO MEET YOU.

I've never stopped believing that, if I can find the right door, I'll be whisked away from our world to one filled with magic and archetypal characters. While there, I will encounter a strange (but wise) mentor who will send me on a seemingly-suicidal quest wherein I will confront my darkest inner demons. It's OK, though, because I will totally emerge a stronger person.

Art is my way of building that door. I love to play with surreal imagery to explore the otherwise-invisible aspects of the human experience (and my brain).

I was born, raised, and currently live in the verdant (read: rainy) Pacific Northwest, though there have been stops in California, New England, and Scotland along the way. When I'm not drawing or painting, I'm probably pretending to be a monster with my 5-year-old son, geeking out over sci-fi or fantasy, obsessively making lists that I later forget, or belting showtunes at the top of my lungs.
