Saginaw, MI, USA
I am a Michigan based artist, growing up enjoying the great lakes and the beautiful vast skies and sunsets. My grandmother gave me her oil paint set when I was nine and I’ve been painting ever since. After graduating from the University of Michigan with a BFA I worked throughout Michigan as an art director producing award winning illustrations and designs. Throughout the commercial work, my painting and portraiture was always my greatest joy and passion which I then dedicated my energies and career to the arts and my painting . Unfortunately in 2019 I had a near-death accident with multiple injuries and surgeries and after a year of recovery, I was able to paint again. During this traumatic experience a new appreciation for life emerged, I am so grateful, my painting has become my highest passion, painting as much as I can, painting from my heart and sharing it with the world.
I work hard, am passionate to create paintings that can help people. I feel the place I take the viewer is multi-dimensional both in touching places in their memories, in their hearts and taking them through a story leading to a safe enjoyable emotional place. My paintings create a healing energy through strategic color and lighting relationships and design, bringing feelings of comfort, warmth, hope and peaceful harmony.
