I've always known that I would be an artist. When I was little I would spend afternoons, sunny as well as rainy, with my grandmother painting and drawing.
After graduating from Grand Valley State University in Michigan with a BFA (emphasis in illustration) I found my way to Ithaca. Here I continue to practice my art, blurring the line between fine and illustrative art.
Although most of my images are based on specific stories in mythology, they depart from the strict narrative and become symbolic of the overall identity themes in the text. Recurring imagery throughout the pieces suggests connections to a larger story. The drawings appeal to our unconscious making them as much about the viewers themselves as the artist who created them.
