"I was born, raised and currently reside in Oregon. My studies include art and design. I am professionally trained in applying architectural finishes. My passion is for improving the aesthetic environments we live in, I feel if you love your surroundings you are more productive and happy in life. I utilize innovative methods working with acrylics on wood panel, allowing for a much stronger interaction between colors, textures, and layers. I am intrigued by the interaction of industrial finishes and organic shapes. It is the point where man made materials meet the earth. I love the freedom space gives me when working on larger scale pieces. My art works well in both residential and commercial spaces."
