Painting is my medium of choice. I focus on creating from the heart, letting my intuition guide me as I move through each piece. The goal is always to just make things that feel right, that feel natural to me. I prefer painting large-scale, allowing the movement my whole body to become part of the working process. I try to work quickly when I can, not giving my brain the opportunity to prejudge and critique as I go, allowing the work to naturally reveal itself. Abstract is my favorite subject matter as it allows individuals to create their own associations and perceptions of the work, a meaning unique to only them. I also explore landscapes, sill life and figure painting.

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. This is my home and I continue to enjoy all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. I graduated from Oregon State University in 2005.
