PROFILE

Creating a unique connection to a common place through a softening of boundaries, I like to invite connection and clarity to the chaos of the human experience through my work.  I imagine in vibrant colors, candid lines, and fertile textures and see myself recreating those landscapes on canvas and with clay.
