Artist Bio

Drawing and painting has always felt like a natural way to express myself. I remember as early as age seven my mother having me sit outside with a sketch book and encouraging me to draw a grove of birch trees. Art school at the University of Michigan was a logical progression and led me to jobs in graphic art, teaching art and a commercial and residential interior design practice.

Always knowing I would ultimately pursue painting as a full time career, in 2006 I began to study with Cary Jurriaans at the Fall City Fine Art Studio (now the Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio). I continued to study for six years in a part time program at the Georgetown Atelier with Tenaya Sims, drawing and painting using graphite, charcoal, and oil paint and focused on learning to work in a representational manner doing figures and still-life.

I have taken professional workshops with a number of accomplished artists that have helped further my development. Some of the most inspiring and influential were: Michael Grimaldi for his teaching of anatomy and structure, Henry Stinson for his use of color, and David Jon Kassan for his approach to figure drawing.

I am at a point now where I want to experiment with my style; looser, bolder colors, and different subject matter and composition. I look forward to the continuing journey.
