My portfolio encompasses a body of mixed media prints and paintings. The process of my work derives from creating abstracted backgrounds and environments married with portraits and drawings. Each medium used, provides its own sense of rawness and intimacy. The finer details portray aggressive or delicate mark making created over abstracted layers and translucent washes.
In my latest work I have begun experimenting with creating large artworks of abstracted acrylic paintings and have continued producing album artwork designs for local musicians.
I love to constantly create and work with my hands. I am completely fascinated with how paper absorbs pigment or how it layers pastel dust. Whether it is drawing with charcoal, splattering paint onto canvas or smearing ink onto handmade paper, I love creating color and texture.
I have a background in painting and printmaking, particularly relief cut. I love to experiment with collage, utilizing and playing with different mediums. I enjoy creating patterns through the use of line work and blending colors.
I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point with a BFA in Studio Art and a BA in Arts Management. I currently live and work in Madison, Wisconsin USA.
