I use oil, watercolor and ink to portray things I think are better than us. I have always had the urge to make marks, it brings me peace to do so. Through watercolor and ink I explore themes and stories, while oil has me tangled in colors and shapes. My heart is buried in Montana, Hawaii, Washington and Alaska. I gravitate towards places where wild things are, and people are not. Though I exude light and eternal optimism, I do believe there is a great sadness to life. A sadness I find intriguing and beautiful.
