"I create large, gestural, figurative abstract paintings for commercial and residential spaces"A Colorado native, I studied art at the University of Colorado in Boulder. I earned my Master of Education degree in Integrating Teaching Through the Arts, which combined my two passions, art and education. Working as an educator and artist, I believe that teaching through the arts deepens understanding and connections. For the past five years, I have been actively painting and collaborating with artists and instructors at the Art Students League of Denver and Anderson Ranch Art Center in Snowmass, Colorado. I am now a painting full time and have opened my studio in the RiNo Arts District in Denver at GRACe Studios.
