I was born in Portland, Oregon and raised in Washington State in the foothills of Mt. St. Helens. Exploring the woods as a young girl began my observation of and interest in the color and intricacies of nature. Climbing trees and running through the woods sparked my love for adventure, movement and creation.
My artwork has evolved through my life as an art therapist and educator, youth worker, wilderness instructor, and my exploration of the world through climbing rocks, travel and mountainous beauty. I am inspired by life and nature in all it's forms--calm, chaotic, dry and abundant.
My passion and hope is to inspire and open up wells of creativity, courage and life in others through my art and my art process.
