I was born in South Bridge Massachusetts, grew up in a quaint new England town complete with stonewall lined pastures and harsh winters, spent my teen years on a 87 acre farm full of rolling hills in New Berlin, New York. I then moved to the semi tropical growing city of Greenville, South Carolina while traveling back and forth to Marion, IN for collage. Where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Illustration from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2016. I am now a professional landscape painter residing in Greenville, SC.
The way that I have developed my style has evolved over the years, ten years since I’ve started painting in acrylic back when I was living in New York! After being given professional grade paint by a friend who works at Golden Artist Paint Headquarters, I began entering my work into juried shows and winning awards. Which inspired me to pursue a career in art. After taking to heart my study in Illustration and an Art Survey of Impressionism class I developed an emotive way of establishing a painting, pulling from my connection with the landscape to establish an impressive sense of mood.
