A Little About Me

biopic_webI was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and still remember the wide open sky, sun, wind and snow.  Moving to Portland, Oregon at age of 7, my love and appreciation for nature was amplified further.  I’m inspired greatly by the earth through hiking, skiing and travel.  My painting and cards reveal my fascination with rich colors, organic shapes and bold patterns.  The breadth of my work comes from a deep connection with the ground — I paint the “skin” of the earth which unconsciously releases layers of ethereal imagery.

BA Graphic Design, Portland State University.
My paintings are in private collections throughout Oregon
