Like many artists, I consider myself a visual storyteller. On one hand, I love capturing moments, expressions, and subtle gestures through figurative realism, while on the other hand I am inspired by the feelings and interpretations that can be created through color, texture, and abstraction. My work is thus both illustration as well as a window into the subconscious, and as I evolve as an artist, these two ideas seem to be converging more and more.
My passion stems from a constant desire to improve my technique while making sure to balance this with a healthy sense of experimentation and discovery. This inevitably results in a studio art practice that is both challenging and inspiring.
I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree with concentrations in Studio Art and Art Education, a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Art, and an MA in Education from Humboldt State University. I currently teach art and ceramics at Saint Bernard's Academy and serve on the Board of Directors for the Humboldt Arts Council. My work has been exhibited throughout Humboldt County and is in many private collections.
