I am an artist specializing in portraiture (human or otherwise), but with broad interests ranging from the strictly observed to images lending from dreams and imagination. It is my belief that there are unspoken qualities to every subject that can only be addressed in paint; there is nothing I love more than delving into these underlying psychologies, teasing them to the surface with texture, color, and light.
 
I graduated Colby College in May 2014 with B.A.s in Studio Art and Biology.
 
Outside of the studio, I enjoy horseback riding, reading, spending time with my pets, and gamboling about on the beach.
