THE DREAMY DANCE OF A BALLERINA, THE DECAYING FLESH OF AN OLD BUILDING, THE DELICATE ROMANTICISM OF NATURE -- I SEEK TO CAPTURE THESE THINGS THAT I AM ENTRANCED BY, SEEK TO CONVEY THE THINGS THAT I FIND BEAUTY IN.

ABOUT THE ARTIST...

Hello!

 

I am a printmaker/drawer by study, but I enjoy working with many media and delight in the creation of details.  I grew up in a small town in Minnesota, surrounded by nature and with my hands on any crayon or pencil I could find, always drawing, always creating.  The design of old houses, the stories ancient buildings held, the wonder of tiny flowers and mushrooms popping up in hidden corners of a garden, every flit of a butterfly wing - they all entranced me, all worked their way into my mind, inspiring my creations.

 

In the past, fairy tales, fantasy, and macabre themed art was a driving influence behind my own art.  Today, I also find joy in depicting the human figure and nature, whether it be a portrait or a fairytale story, something that depicts the beauty of reality, or is interlaced with romantic and eerie qualities. 

 

I received my BFA in Studio Art with a double emphasis in Drawing and Printmaking, and a minor in Art History from Minnesota State University Moorhead.  

 

And when I’m not working on my own art, I’m working at a local bronze sculpture studio.  Outside the studio, I also enjoy reading, traveling, baking sweets, hanging out with my two cats, and taking care of my many orchids, succulents, and other plants!
