I am a lover of art, and all things outdoors. My passion is taking my paints outside and capturing a moment in time that expresses the soothing drama of expansive landscapes. I have been painting professionally for ten years. I grew up in Marin County, California where redwood forests meet the ocean and miles of grassy hills touch the bay. When I wasn’t outside exploring, I was at home, engrossed in an art project. After graduating college, where I studied Anthropology, I had no idea what I was going to do with my life. I was lost in our fast-paced culture. I struggled with keeping up, comparing myself to others, and belonging. While wading through sadness, I came to find that the more time I spent outside in nature, the happier I felt. The more connected I was to Mother Earth, the more I felt like I belonged to something beautiful, meaningful and safe. And documenting that connection through painting, was very powerful and invigorating. It was a natural progression for me to create a career out of that relationship.
