I am an artist, wife & momma living in Star Valley, Wyoming. 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 is a big influence and has 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 found new mediums to make my heart swoon. While oil is still my main medium, over the years I’ve loved working with lino printing, watercolor and teaching workshops. Along with this I’ve also become a self-taught surface pattern designer & have loved working with brands such as: Little Road Co., Loomwell, Ayara Home & Ava Gowns.
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 my family & creating lasting memories with them.
I am self represented and sell my work online and ship directly from my studio in Wyoming.
