BIO

I am a contemporary abstract artist, inspired by my time in the wilds. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, I grew up surrounded by big mountains and big trees in Washington State. I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts, in painting and sculpture, in 2000. My work has been exhibited nationally and has found homes with collectors nationally and internationally. I currently live on a sky island in the Sonoran Desert, where I live off-grid, collect rain water, and watch the sun set nearly every night from the porch of my studio.

MY WORK

My work is heavily influenced by the time I spend in the wilds of nature, although it’s not quite that simple—It’s more about self and place, beauty and love, and the connection with nature.

I create contemporary, postminimalism and abstract, paintings and sculptures. In my work, I am interested in creating a meditative space, one that invites and reflects the connection between self and the world.

STUDIO

My studio is a sub-200 sq ft space built with my hands from local rock. I live on a sky island in the Sonoran Desert, off-grid and collect rainwater. I watch the sunset nearly every night when I am home, watching it move across the horizon like the shadow on a sundial. It punctuates my days.
