I grew up in a rural Maine town by the Canadian boarder surrounded by teachers, potato farmers, long road takers, and some of the most breathtaking landscapes. When it was time for me to move away , I had gained a curiosity for life, a thirst for art, and a love for my community.
When you make art it’s a culmination of your experiences and I see my abstract works as an exhale for my joy, doubt, empowerment, confusion, and love. My work is intuitive by nature, full of layers built out of color and texture, and infused with an unapologetic energy. I don’t often begin these pieces with a plan, but instead create in an effort to still my mind, become present, and share my voice. It’s my hope that you, too, will become still and present with the work.
