A B O U T   M E

I was born in Bowling Green, Ohio with a love for art that I’ve carried with me throughout my life. Drawing is my discipline of choice because it is accessible and immediate. I enjoy taking something as simple as a pencil and creating something complex and stimulating. I find inspiration for my work in everyday life and the things that I observe. I enjoy capturing the emotion, nuance, and nostalgia in the various intimate moments we experience in our daily lives with, at times, a touch of humor, irreverence, or quirkiness that I hope brings to mind a fond memory or the inspiration to create one.

I’m a graduate of Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I earned my BFA in Drawing. I have plans to further my education with a master’s degree, with which I intend to pursue a career in higher education in fine art while maintaining my own studio practice.
