There have been two seasons of creating artwork in my life so far.

In high school, I practically lived in the art room. I had my electric tea kettle and a shelf for my snacks and lunch. It was bliss.

I graduated with a BFA from the University of Oregon in multimedia design. My studies included drawing, painting, illustration, 3D animation, and website design. My focus after graduation was web design — and I currently work for Oregon State University as a website designer.

In 2020 with the rise of Covid, I started drawing and painting regularly again. My recent art training includes:

  • The Creative Visionary Program led by San Fransisco artist Nicholas Wilton (2022)

  • Art to Life workshop led by Nicholas Wilton (2022 and 2023)

  • Natural Elements course by Christine Lashley (2023)

  • Connected Artists Club by London artist Alice Sheridan (2023)

I'm on an art-related journey -- and I'd love to share it with you. Forever an Oregonian, becoming a Nebraskan.
