Painter, illustrator, and portrait artist in watercolor gouache. My style is often very detailed, focusing on patterns and bright colors displayed in the natural world.
Born in Colorado to adventurous parents, much of my childhood was spent playing in the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains, camping and hiking with family. Bug collecting with my entomologist grandfather fostered joy in all creatures and a habit of observation. My illustrations attempt to document the beauty of creation from experiences living across the United States and abroad in southeast Asia.
I received a bachelor of fine art degree from the University of Memphis in 2006, specializing in watercolor and gouache. I currently live and works in Memphis, Tennessee with my husband and four kids.
