I originally grew up in Sheboygan Falls, WI. I had always been interested in art. By age 10, I had started water-based painting lessons and later began taking private lessons with Kitty Lyn Klitch, a locally renowned artist. I gained recognition in a handful of National art competitions for teenagers.
After a 3 year stint as a youth minister in Iowa, I earned my BA in Fine Arts with an endorsement in K-12 Art Education from Northwestern College and moved to Washington. Now I work primarily with encaustic and acrylics, and have a consistently growing portfolio. My work has been shown in a variety of local galleries, including UpFront in Issaquah, Two Vaults in Tacoma, and Microsoft in Redmond.
