I am an artist living in the Pacific Northwest passionate about conservation, wildlife, and the natural world.  These subjects are a confluence of my past experiences, my future aspirations, and all that I find genuinely inspirational.  After years working with various conservation efforts, ultimately completing a degree in veterinary medicine, I have found a calling representing these animals and the natural spaces in which they inhabit through the medium of painting. 
After studying painting for many years, including an atelier position with Seattle artist Kimberly Trowbridge, I have refocused my creative efforts, and returned to subjects I know and care for deeply.  I hope to present these unique animals to the public as I see them myself, and in doing so, raise awareness about the challenges many of them are facing.  My goal is to share their story and beauty with the world. 
Additionally, I enjoy painting plein air and studio landscapes, figure and Flamenco studies, as well as some imaginative and narrative works.

In recognition of the national examination of systemic racism and injustices, Gage Academy of Art is committed to continued analysis and expansion of our own institutional practices.

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.
