I graduated from Herron School of Art and Design in 2011 with a Bachelors in Fine Art with an emphasis in Drawing, a Bachelors in Art Education, and a minor in Art History. I have experience working in a variety of media ranging from oil paint, watercolor, acrylic, encaustic, printmaking, woodcut, and collage, darkroom photography, digital photography and digital alteration and creation with programs like Photoshop. I teach art by day at Greenfield-Central High School and paint by night.

About My Work:

My work mostly consist of acrylic paintings on canvas, although I also create installations.
My paintings start by being carefully planning their compositions. Once I have one that I am excited to paint, I grid the image and build a canvas to scale. Slowly, I paint the image onto a gridded canvas.

My installations are created with the paint leftover at the end of each painting session. I hate to waste it so I create a method of recycling it that builds slowly over time.

I am also fascinated by the process of transformation. I like to take images of my paintings periodically and put them together on a slide show. At the bottom of each artworks page on this website you will find a slideshow of the painting or installations creation.

I am really interested in historical artwork, architecture, and feminism so they tend to end up in my work.

Feel free to contact me for a commission piece. If you have a photo or idea you would like to start with, I would be happy to paint it.
