As long as I can remember I have loved art, and creating it. I knew art was for me when I was in kindergarten class, and we had “creative hour”. I set up a sheet of paper on an easel, poured out some red and white hand paint next to each other on a dish, and started mixing. Little did I know, that magical swirling action would produce the color PINK! Pink, yep, that was pretty amazing for the 5-year-old me, and I was hooked to mixing paint, drawing, and pretty much being involved in anything remotely creative from that point on.

I participated in elective art classes in high school, went onto MIAD for a year, with a focus on illustration, and ended up transferring to UW-Oshkosh to attain my BFA in Painting & Drawing.

While in college, I was honored to receive one of two collaborative research grants given to art students each year. It was an amazing experience, and I grew so much from it.

Since then, I have been working on many different pieces. Ceramics, paintings, drawings, illustrations, plein air work, commissions, and so much more. It’s wonderful to be able to still be doing, what I fell in love with hook line and sinker some 25+ years ago.

Thank you for visiting.
