I am a Midwest artist currently based in Bloomington, IN. With my artwork, I try to capture familiar surroundings that we grow up with, to give comfort, and to share beauty in the overlooked terrain of our roots. I am inspired by life experiences, geology, and anthropology.

Although I mainly work with acrylic paints, I call my work “mixed media” because I am using different objects to enhance the textures that you see in most of my paintings. You can find glass, stone, aluminum, cloth, wire…the possibilities are endless.

My current obsession is Plein Air painting.
