About

Welcome to my Studio!

I've been drawing animals real and imagined since I was a kid, and have always loved stories about worlds outside of and overlapping with our own. The Neverending Story, My Neighbor Totoro, and Jurassic Park are just a few favorite stories from my childhood lore. To this day I am enthralled by imaginative realism and the fantastic, and I love to explore my dreamscapes through painting.

Part of why I paint is because my mental health depends on it (I get grouchy if it's been too many days in a row without a pencil or brush in hand)! For my entire adult life I've been trying to figure out what the heck I was put on this planet for. I have to thank my parents, my mentor, my husband, and all of the friends who have supported me from the beginning, and who always knew I would end up with art. Since coming to the slow realization that art is, after all, a worthy way to spend my time on Earth, I have also come around to the idea that maybe it would be alright for me to try to make a living at it, also.

At the moment I live in Santa Cruz county in California with my husband, Jamison, who is a mathematician. We enjoy the local coffeehouses and I love to hike in the surrounding state parks. My dream is to run a shared studio space with other artists and to live close to my family on enough land to have a garden and chickens (and maybe a few goats).

I would love for you to join me in building a better reality. I believe we can actually make the world a better place, and that this is a world worth saving. I'm doing my best to live this out, one painting at a time. What's your dream?
