ARTIST STATEMENT

  • Making things has been a part of my life since I was very young. My mom taught me to sew and knit, and my dad passed along carpentry skills and a curiosity for 3D art. I would steal my parents’ drafting tools, grab some paper out of the printer, and draw for hours. Drawing was my very first love, and then I discovered ink and watercolor. I primarily work non-digitally, but do occasionally edit in photoshop here and there. I am very curious about human interaction with nature and other living things, and this comes across in my work.
