I work in bold colors and sharp contrasts. I’m drawn to patterns that echo biological rhythms. Rock walls evoke cellular structures. Tree limbs connect like synapses. Rivers flow like veins. I pull inspiration from fairy tales, nursery rhymes and mythology. I capture moments and ideas from iconic stories in chaotic landscapes where above ground and below ground mingle and blend like the subconscious surfacing for air.
I am a Kansas City based artist working from my home studio in Midtown.
I earned my BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 2000 and an MA in Teaching from Park University in 2008.
