Artist Statement

I believe art is a window to the soul. My artistic style has gone through many changes over the years. I find that these days I’m drawn to loose layering, letting go of expectations, and approaching the canvas with a sense of mystery. This expression is intuitive, powerfully therapeutic, and highly forgiving since I can’t screw it up, instead I cover it up.

I’m a creative entrepreneur. Being an artist is what you make of it. If you think it’s hard, it’s hard. If you think it’s fun, then it’s fun. Just don’t expect it to support you until it starts to support you and prepare to work your buns off.

As a child I was obsessed with drawing. My parents are both artists and encouraged my hobby. I went to art school at Humboldt State University and gravitated to drawing and photography.

After that I worked in a number of galleries, frame shops, an auction, and an art supply store. Along side my day jobs I also delved fully into acrylic painting.

Next, I expanded into home styling and dealing in vintage furniture and décor. I never put down my paints and brushes, though. Combining vintage inventory with art has been the turning point in my career. They thrive together in any space and I find it deeply satisfying.

The next phase: teaching this panting process. I’m head over heals excited about it! More information can be found on my website at
