I am a Studio Artist currently based in Arizona. I paint in oil and acrylic. I sculpt with clay and draw with pencil, pigment, and charcoal.
My work currently depicts landscapes. Some are in a traditional style while others are abstract. All have a contemporary edge with my signature linear designs. I have always loved taking in my surroundings on road trips, hikes, and the like, but have tried to stay away from drawing them due to college-learned prejudices.
When I moved back to Arizona from Utah I became ironically homesick - living in the place I grew up, aching for the place I became me. I use landscapes to work through the displacement I feel both geographically and emotionally.
