Since the early age of 8, my roots have always been intertwined in nature and art. 

Raised in Colorado and Wyoming, I was lucky to grow up in wildly beautiful states and spent countless hours exploring the outdoors and its wildlife. As my fascination with nature and interest in art grew, I began painting the animals I Ioved to observe as a means of developing a unique style while feeding my love of the environment. 

Fifteen years later, my appreciation for the wild things in life, and the desire to capture them in a unique artistic style has only grown. For me, there is nothing more inspiring than the natural world. Nature holds so much beauty and mystery I often find myself flooded with awe each time I step outside. It is a gift to live on a planet graced with so much life, yet many seem to take this for granted. If art is a universal language, it is my hope to speak out with my work— to move people to look closer and see the beauty in the other lives we share this remarkable planet with.

In Spring 2020 I earned my degree in environmental biology and wildlife ecology from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. When not painting at my studio in Flagstaff, I work as a Grand Canyon biologist, studying fish of the Colorado River. 

 

I believe giving back to the wild is imperative to its protection, and to play my part, 5% of all sales are donated to conservation projects around the globe. I hope that my passion for the environment and the arts will draw others closer to nature and bring attention to the importance of wildlife conservation.
