I was born and raised in a small mountain town in New Hampshire. Surrounded by forest and natural beauty, my love for the wonders of the outdoors was immediate and encompassing. Hailing from a family of self-taught artists, my mother truly encouraged and inspired me to indulge in my artistic abilities. Even from a young age, I have always been most content with my pens and sketchpad deep in nature.
Inspired by the natural landscapes and the rich cultures of the people and places I visit, I choose simplicity in the black and white medium of ink for my Letterpress Collection.
For my Wildflower Seed Paper Collection, I have chosen to splash color onto each card as the colors are representative of the blooms of the flowers.
I hope each card brings happiness to every person they are gifted to.
As for my paintings, i started painting about 10 years ago when i was introduced to what quality materials were. Whether it was thick acrylic paints with vibrant colors or cotton canvases, my idea of what painting was transformed into a new world. i work in both oil and acrylic mediums.
I have been painting and selling here and there, it hasn't been until recently that i have dedicated much more of my time painting and have worked with collectors curating commissioned work.
It is through the encouragement i receive from my friends, family and collectors to keep going.
