about the artwork
I am an abstract, mixed media artist based in the Midwest USA. My work is a tangible expression of an intuitive, emotive, process-driven conversation between myself and the work. I am intrigued by the tension between calm and chaos and am inspired by the things around me that hold a secret history. I attempt to reveal and hope to connect by creating work with visceral resonance.
I received a BFA in Graphic Design from Ohio University. It was in San Francisco, while working in publishing, where I was first introduced to monotype printmaking (in the back-room workshop of an unassuming gallery in a small alleyway) that my art making journey was ignited. As an artist I am still, and will always be, just at play.
Navigating the challenges of a creative life wouldn't be nearly as gratifying without the constant flow of chaos and hilarity that accompanies raising two young men, caring for a persnickety pug, and awaiting a visit from an ever-elusive cat.
Let's connect! If you'd like to learn more, drop me a note. I'd love to hear from you!
