Deep in the woods of Vermont, I create art inspired by my connection to nature. Mixed media art and handmade cards that reflect the colors and textures that surround me. Combining acrylic paint and pen; I form elements of painting, drawing, hand-printed leaves, and collage. These materials allow me to capture the enchanting moments and humbling complexity of the forest. I believe creativity is an essential bridge for us to strengthen the interconnection of our human and nonhuman communities. By sharing my art, and my love for nature, I hope to inspire more people to actively and thoughtfully protect the natural world.

As early as I can remember, nature and my creativity have always provided a respite for me. A quiet and inspiring place to rejuvenate my body and mind, away from the complexities and stress of the everyday. Art became my voice early on in school and led me to the University of Massachusetts, where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1999. Having fallen in love with the natural beauty of the region I remained: to create art, explore the landscape, and work with various art venues in Western Massachusetts. During this time, my desire to build a more direct connection to nature became a necessity. In 2018 my partner and I decided to leave our downtown conveniences for a cozy home hidden among 54 acres of woods in Southern Vermont. In this wonderfully inspiring place we learn; how to improve the habitat for wildlife, be humble stewards of the forest, and strengthen resiliency for an uncertain future. Striving to live a more harmonious life with nature both in action and aesthetics. I aspire to create in collaboration with nature, expressing my creativity in the studio and within the landscape itself.
