About the Artist

I was born in Oregon in 1978 and grew up in both Oregon and then later Texas.  I obtained a bachelor degree from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver Colorado in 2001.  My interests include anthropology, wildlife, literature, cooking and travel.  Though I have traveled to various locations around the world I’ve always loved the nature of the Pacific Northwest and longed to return one day.  In 2011, I moved to Washington State and currently reside in Auburn.

My inspiration is nature and I find myself outside enjoying the great outdoors as often as possible.  My process often begins with a “walk-about”, roaming around with no set destination.  I feel when one is not really looking for anything in peculiar is the moment when nature reveals a bit of herself not noticed before.

Every painting I create is oil on stretched canvas working with both brushes and painting knives.  Painting is a form of meditation for me and I think my art reflects a certain calmness.  I hope others will be inspired by my art rather it be to travel to the location in the painting or their own backyard.  Ultimately I wish that everyone can stop and take that second look, rather it is outside or even within their selves and let that second look become a third, and fourth…..
