About Atlas Peak Studio

Atlas Peak is perhaps best known as an AVA in Napa Valley, and the tallest point in the western Vaca Range at over 2600 feet. As a teenager, I knew it as a winding rural road that my friends liked to street luge down. Atlas Peak has loomed large at other points in my personal history as well. It evokes Napa, without overtly stating Napa. It's rustic and beautiful, difficult and dangerous. And quite frankly, it's an elegant phrase that feels pleasing to say. All of those things appeal to me.


So welcome to Atlas Peak Studio.

Personal Work:

I am a writer, photographer, and mixed-media artist. Much of my art has a literary theme to it, and I often use old book pages to make my pieces. I like to combine poetry and visual art using paper, acrylic paint, glue, wood, and other objects. I sell my photography, poetry, and mixed-media art at my studio in the 100 Coombs Creative Collective during our monthly Open Studios, and at various events throughout Napa Valley.

I also offer fine art portrait photography and specialize in large archival wall art installations. Please visit my other website for more information.
