Born, raised and home schooled in rural northeastern Washington state, I am a self-taught, artist and designer. I grew up surrounded by the contrasting beauties of nature, my mother’s extensive library of lavishly illustrated books and plenty of quiet time to observe, wonder and create.
I am endlessly inspired by the world around me --- both tangible and ethereal --- vibrant, saturated colors, overly intense light, fluid forms, jagged textures, vivid dreams and gauzy daydreams--- the sheer luminosity of life, humanity and the cosmos, often leaves me speechless
--- through my art I can express what I experience --- I find a deeper understanding of this vast universe and my own flickering place within it.
I can only hope that those who view my works may glimpse a piece of the same.
