I was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. As an only child, I credit my artistic abilities to the free-spirited, unconventional upbringing that allowed me to safely explore my world and feed my imagination. My early exposure to caring for young wild animals in a local nature center would cultivate a lifelong love and curiosity of the natural world, as expressed in the art I create to this day.

I've always been fascinated with "old world" artistry and have traveled extensively to see it up close. A self-taught artist, my earlier pursuits have involved calligraphy, bookmaking, drawing and leaded stained glass. In recent years, my love of natural materials and taste for the ethereal ultimately drew me to encaustic painting and collage work. I've experimented heavily with encaustics (the ancient art of using heated beeswax+damar resin+pigments) and find it an equally exciting and challenging medium - an exercise in a sort of forced abstraction. Along with encaustic medium, I incorporates found objects, metals, glass, drawings and calligraphy into my sculptural and collage pieces - even electronics! Many of my works reveal inspirations from ancient archetypes, symbology, lost alphabets and dreams.
