“What is creative living? Any life that is driven more strongly by curiosity than fear" ~Elizabeth Gilbert

I paint evocative landscapes using vibrant, contemporary colors and juicy textures in oil.

I grew up in Maine and started painting when I was a kid. I received a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and began my career in graphic design. Then, when the opportunity came for me to explore painting and creating full time, I took it, and have thoroughly enjoyed pursuing my creative passions ever since.

I love painting en plein air and the challenge of spontaneous painting, capturing the changing colors of nature in real time. I also enjoy using studio time to design larger, thoughtful works using big brushes and carefully curated shapes and textures.

Clients often ask me to create custom artwork for their homes. These collaborations are a delightful way for me to help people express themselves in their spaces, seamlessly blending art with their interior sensibilities and interests.

In addition to painting, I have a passion for writing. I enjoy sharing stories on my blog about my clients and our creative processes, my artistic adventures, life's serendipities, interior design, and anything that inspires me to create more.

I hope my work offers a respite from the frenetic pace of life. By sharing my passion for wild places and the beauty of the natural world, I aim to foster a deeper connection between people and nature.
