I am an artist living in Star Valley, Wyoming with my husband Sam and our pup Penny. We moved here just a short time ago and have loved getting to know the area. I am constantly inspired by the kind people, the wildflowers that line the roads and our big beautiful mountains.
I grew up in Northern California in a family full of artists. From a young age my dad instilled a love for art in not only me but all four of my siblings as well. I was the kid that won all of the school art competitions & can remember bringing all my pens and pencils to church so that I could sit on the pews and color. My family was a big influence and always encouraged me to follow my dreams.
I attended Utah's Brigham Young University and graduated with my Bachelor's of Art in April of 2020. It was there that I furthered my love for oil painting and was able to pursue new interests such as lino printmaking. These have quickly become my two favorite mediums, although I love dabbling in watercolor and teaching workshops as well. I also do a little bit of digital work and design all of the patterns for the cutest children's company, LuLu&Roo Clothing.
When I am not working in my studio I enjoy exploring our mountains and spending time on the river with my little family. I live for sunny days and can just sit in the grass for hours daydreaming about my next painting. I love traveling and getting to know new cultures and places.
