I am an artist and lover of all things beautiful and true. I am passionate about documenting and helping to preserve the traditional cultures of the world through my paintings.
When I am not creating, I love to hike, backpack, snorkel, rock climb, and read a good book.
My grandmother nurtured my creativity and taught me to paint at a young age. I studied printmaking and Spanish at Northern Arizona University, graduating with a BLA in 2003.
I am from Flagstaff, Arizona, but currently reside in Southeast Asia. I have lived in China for nearly a decade, and spent a significant amount of time in Mexico and South America as well.
I am married to a wonderful man and have two daughters I am extremely proud of.
