Artist & Illustrator
Having grown close to nature on a farm just north of Fort Collins, my artwork is heavily influenced by the patterns, colors, and beauty of the natural world. My children’s book paintings and illustrations strive to express the wondrous and imaginative world of children. I hope that my work inspires fresh thought, joy, and intrigue. My hope is also to make art approachable, fun, and engaging to a diversified public, promoting freedom and creativity. After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Western State College of Colorado in 2008 and studying fine arts abroad in Italy for a month, I returned to the Front Range where I currently work as a freelance artist and agriculturalist.
