Biography: 

I have loved art since I was a child. Even if I didn't undertsand what it meant, I enjoyed the way it made me feel- how it made me feel a myriad of emotions and think all kinds of thoughts. My grandparents encouraged me to be a "maker"- to tinker and to create. I'm sure those early projects weren't what anyone would consider art, but they instilled an appreciation for the process of making and created a habit of creativity. I am as facinated by the processes as I am the finished works, so I studied art history in college. This introduced me to so many styles and influences. I weave bits and pieces of the visual as well as the philosophical influences of the artists and movements that i feel connected to. I subcribe to the idea that things should be made to last as well- I despise the disposable nature of our society. I take great care in the craftsmanship of my work and the quality of my materials.
Artist Philosophy: 

My goal, not just in my art, but also in my interactions with people, is to make life more beautiful. We, as a society, focus a lot of our energy on 'results' without taking into consideration the journey. For me, the proccess of making a piece is just as valuable as the finished piece and I am passionate about helping others connect to their inner maker. Our wellbeing as people is improved by the act of making- our lives are made richer and the world around us becomes more connected.
Ultimately, this is how I chage the world and make it a better place- one piece of art at a time, one story, one connection.
