I was born and raised in Jackson, Michigan. After a year of general education at Jackson College, I moved to Grand Rapids to attain my BFA in Illustration from Grand Valley State University. My art is an amorphous representation of the time I’ve spent exploring visual solutions. Often times, I start without a clear understanding of where it may lead. Throughout the process of my drawing, I make design decisions on the fly. Although, I spend time meditating on the aesthetic of the lines I draw and the colors I add. Aside from art and design, I really admire the outdoors. You can find me swimming, or relaxing on the shores of Lake Michigan during the summer. I enjoy cruising on my bike or longboards. I love traveling, especially with my loved ones. Finding a place in the woods or a trail in the mountains is what I thrive for.
