I'm passionate about creating my own art and sharing that joy with others through teaching. I received my Studio Art and Education degree in 2009 from St. Olaf College in Minnesota. 

In my own artwork, I often explore themes of nature and the environment. My father is an ornithologist and so I have always been fascinated with birds.  I like to use fine detail, as I really enjoy taking time to closely observe my subjects. This detailed approach carries over to my work painting commissioned pet portraits and wildlife.
