Beauty is always my purpose, whether I am creating a canvas, a sculpture, or a piece of furniture.

I began my life as an artist in Montana. As a child I took in the great landscapes with every breath — mountain ranges in every direction, living drama in the sky, rich palettes of color. Outside every day we had the freedom to construct our own lives. I began to watercolor at age 12, and have never stopped making art. My architecture degree gave me a strong foundation in design and aesthetics.

Moving through different media — oils and watercolors, sculpture, and furniture — gives me an endless pathway to explore themes and ideas.  I want to add beauty to the world, and each piece offers the hope that I just might succeed.
