I work largely with the figure, yet as of late exploring more abstract methods of representation. I am drawn to positive/negative space, mysteriousness and intimacy, wanting the viewer to make their own interpretation. I studied drawing and illustration in school and I'm a self taught painter. I prefer oils, I love the spontaneity of the paint and using color to create space.
I grew up in the midwest but longed to see the bigger world. I have lived in Paris, New York, Minneapolis and currently Portland, Oregon, I look forward finding the next place in this world to live and explore.
