I grew up in Bellingham, Washington and am now based in Seattle. I spent most of my 20s working seasonal jobs and living across the West, Alaska, and Hawaii. Growing up I spent hours every week with my horses, this way of life grew my love for the outdoors and has since developed into a love of snowboarding, mountain biking and camping.
I developed a deep appreciation for the West when I spent a year living in my AWD Toyota Sienna driving up to Alaska and down the West Coast. Finding places to park for the night, away from crowds, led me to explore Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands and sparked an interest to learn about the public lands in America.
I believe less is more and find beauty in minimalism. My work is directly influenced by the wide, open places that are often overlooked, but where I feel most at home. My work is constantly changing and evolving much like those landscapes.
