Growing up in rural western Wisconsin, I spent most of my childhood exploring the woods of my parents' 20+ acres of land. I was an introverted, quiet and sensitive child with a love of exploring both the world around me and the world inside my mind. After high school, I moved to Milwaukee to attend The Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design where I received a BFA in painting 4 years later. Over the years, I've refined my aesthetic style of painting whimsical, yet meditative landscapes. Patterned with vibrant color combinations woven together with a paintbrush, a tapestry of intricate particle formations began to emerge in what I now call, my Particle Landscape series of acrylic paintings. Today, my paintings and drawings are reflections of my mind's journey through those childhood places where the remembered and the imagined intersect. My imagination influences my memories. What I choose to take with me from my past is altered over time by what I believe myself to be and what I want to become.
