I was born, and currently reside in, a small(ish) town in Northwest Wisconsin: an area situated on the shores of Lake Superior: a truly magical place full of forests, fields, rocky coastlines, and delightful flora and fauna. My creative endeavors began at a very young age. My mother is very artistic and shared her skills with me at a very young age. I also spent every moment I could outside surrounded by the beautiful Wisconsin countryside, and was fortunate to have parents who loved camping, hiking and the outdoors. Anywhere I went I carried art supplies with me, or if I didn't have them with they were usually the first thing I asked for.
I was, and still am, inspired by things fantastical and the "strange and unusual." Between middle school and high school my artwork took on darker themes and I was inspired by artists like Tim Burton, HR Geiger, Guillermo del Toro, and Frida Kahlo. As I continued on into college my art began transitioning again into what it is now. My work explores the relationship between animals, humans, the earth, and the unknown. There is a fair sense of the spiritual and a sense of being in my work: sometimes light-hearted and other times dark and violent. I do not claim to have one style or theme, rather my artistic style reflects the only constant in life: change.
