Tell us a little about yourself.
I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin. I spent 13 years as an interior decorator, and studied architecture & graphic design. Currently, I am a designer at a frame shop and art gallery, learning the trade of fine art picture framing. There, I also curate the gallery and create the large window displays. When not working or creating, I gather inspiration from my time hiking and traveling.
What kind of art do you create?
The art I create is considered contemporary painting. My paintings are typically comprised of layers of acrylic and spraypaint applied with the use of hand cut stencil, inspired by my own landscape photography. In addition, I often work with graphic design. These designs are exhibited through various graphic marketing media for business and community projects.
How did you get started?
I started creating art and designing at an early age, learning from my grandmother. Later on, I spent many years studying cameras and photo editing software, before deciding on taking formal classes.
How would you describe your artistic style?
My artistic style portrays landscapes by layering large shapes, rich colors, and bold contrasts.
