Born in the Midwest I grew up in rural Wisconsin where I was granted the freedom to wander my family’s idyllic homestead, always multiple dogs in tow.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay with a BA degree in Art and Arts Management. I’ve never been able to justify piling on more student debt, so my dynamic style has evolved away from the brick and mortar educational systems.
Now I find myself in Leavenworth, Washington where I showcase and sell my paintings weekly at an ongoing outdoor art market. My boyfriend and I are both painters who have chosen to “live small” in our 17 foot travel trailer in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
With all the tools and trappings of a mixed media painter my creative spirit is not at peace working in such small quarters. Therefore I generate much of my work outside in the studio space that nature provides. It is here where I honor nature’s imperfect beauty by drawing inspiration from the great Pacific Northwest.
