Art for a Thriving Life

I grew up wandering the woods of Illinois with my Dad. He instilled in me a love of being outside, exploring and learning about local plants, history, and culture. When I moved to Seattle, I transferred that love of exploring to new landscapes. My paintings, drawings, and installations explore the connection between humans and nature, for mutual benefit and wellness of our shared ecology. I hope through my art to help viewers and collectors reconnect with nature for joy, wellness, and conservation.

A portion of my proceeds go to support intersectional conservation and social justice organizations.

I exhibit my work at my Ballard studio, and at local art festivals, markets, and galleries. For upcoming events, please visit the Events tab.

About: Portfolio
Palette notes


I'm an oil painter, and I seek to use natural, non-toxic and plastic-free materials for the majority of my work. I work primarily with walnut-oil based paints, soy-based solvent, and cotton or birch supports. I'm phasing out standard acrylic gesso, which has a plastic base, in favor of marble dust gesso. Add eco-art to your healthy home!

Trees in sunlight


I walk almost daily, whether it's in my neighborhood, urban parks, or on a more remote trail. I love spending time outside, collecting inspiration, and a little exercise... I sketch and do small plein air (outdoor painting) studies when I can, and take a ton of photographs on my phone. I then work on larger paintings in my studio, based on this assemblage of inspiration to create an expression of a specific place or mood.

I also create commissions, and can create art for you that incorporates a favorite local hiking spot, your garden landscape, or specific colors or sizes. Please explore my art and let me know if you are interested in discussing a custom artwork.
