I was born in Germany and moved all around the states through my childhood. I’ve spent most of my life in Colorado, though, enjoying the Rocky Mountains and a quiet little town in the valley. I met my husband there and his Navy career moved us to the East Coast, where we stayed for 10 years and had a pretty cool kid together. It was in Norwich, Connecticut that I got my degree in Visual Fine Art with an emphasis on advanced drawing from Three Rivers College. We left the coast for the Midwest in 2020 to be closer to family and friends and haven’t looked back.

My personal art style falls somewhere between weird situations and realistic representation. I love color, it’s my go-to, the more colors, the happier I am. But I have a soft spot for black and gray work as well.
In my spare time, I love being outdoors. I love hiking, fishing, mushroom hunting, camping, and taking my son on scavenger hunts. I love adrenaline and adventure, anything that puts me out of my comfort zone. I’m an avid horror movie fan and I love anything spooky and mysterious. Outside of art, I’m totally passionate about food and cooking. Seeing buildings and art from other places would be awesome, but just give me the food.
