I am a self-taught artist native to New England.  I traveled west to earn a BA in Anthropology at San Diego State University.   Interests such as photography, travel, and culture, as well as an overall appreciation for the natural world are all evident in my work.

Using elements of my photography and travels, I catch impressions of fleeting moments with oil on canvas and mixed media assembly.
