I've been making art since I can remember.
I grew up in the Allegheny National Forest of Pennsylvania, so the natural world is my first love and primary subject matter. I strive to translate my deep respect and sense of peace with animals and nature into my work. My art involves fine attention to detail and capturing realism with a soul.
When I'm not making art, I can be found working with animals, writing like a madwoman in various cafes, zipping around on my bike, or planning my next adventure. I'm my best self when I travel, and love learning languages and understanding why people are the way they are. I want to be the writer of my own story, promote art advocacy, and see the world while doing it.
