I have always been drawn to nature,  spending most of my childhood playing outside, and began early in life to draw the real and imaginary inhabitants of the natural world. My great-uncle was a painter and I was fascinated with the world of artists, and the perception that they were granted broader freedoms in their expressions and travels.  Throughout life I’ve continued creative pursuits, currently focusing on poetry in the form of writing, textile work and encaustic mixed media.

For me, art is a spiritual process of finding my truth, meaning and the intersection it has with the world, whether that is through nature, geography, dreams, symbolism, science. It is a way of telling my story.

I live in Seattle, Washington and have two young daughters.
