Born along the west coast in San Francisco, CA, I’ve always been drawn to beauty and had a desire to reflect nature’s colors and patterns I saw growing up by the water. I now live on the east coast in downtown Charleston, SC by way of Clemson University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
As an abstract artist, I let my organic process be influenced by my surroundings every day. From the west to the east coast, water has been a constant inspiration in how I approach my work. Nature’s pure colors, rough textures, and balanced compositions find their home in the way I layer paint on a canvas; always with a palette knife in hand.
Artwork can be a breath and break from the ephemeral, mundane reality of life. My abstracted paintings hint at the eternal, cultivate a sense of wonder and awe, and bring people into a beautiful moment. Regardless of my subject matter or inspiration, I always want people to experience a sense of joy from my artwork.
