I’ve been painting since I was sixteen and drawing since I was six. I have a bachelors degree from the University of Whitewater Wisconsin in studio art and a minor in art history. I am inspired by landscapes, people and mountain bike trips. My favorite artists are Monet, and Van Gogh.

I really relish Van Gogh’s style because of its dramatic emotion it brings into a simple picture. At six years old when I saw his painting of his Bedroom in Arles I knew I wanted to be an artist. Looking at his painting I admired the color and dramatic and organic line work.  I am an abstract artist, my work focuses on color, lines, movement, and the emotion of actually being their with a hint of dreamscape theme.
