I always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up (an artist), but was too afraid to admit it. My parents, as loving as they were, encouraged me to be practical. I went through college as a pre-med Biology major, and then settled on an Art History major (close, but not quite). After graduation, I experienced many attempts to find work that truly suited me, but nothing felt right. One night, I woke up and knew I had to finally follow my own internal compass: become an artist. The moment my decision was made, I felt different. I felt better. I felt happier. I now help others experience the whimsy and vitality of life through my art.
Some personal elements about my life: I grew up on an acre of land in Portland, Oregon. My memories of the yard, were such that we had to keep at bay the ever-present, English ivy, and tend to our grove of Douglas Fir trees, which was essentially a small forest with a trail running through it. Dense groupings of layered plants were always up close, and in my face. My parents had a yearly garden, and despite my true desire to constantly watch TV, they made me go outside, for which I am grateful.
More about me: I love cats and their weirdness, succulent plants for their juicy shapes, the color orange for its energy, hiking because it airs out my brain, and stand up paddle boarding which forces me to balance. Finally, thanks to my mountain climbing parents, I've climbed four mountains: Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, South Sister and Symmetry Spire (Grand Tetons).
