I am a Visual Artist working in painting, drawing and graphic design. My practice is informed by nature, environment, emotion and spirituality. I explore realms of time and space, life and death.

Referencing elements of nature in my work, I strive to evoke a gut reaction from the viewer. I leave the tangible for an alternate reality and perceive the world in a spiritual sense. Natural elements such as tornadoes, major storm systems, and environmental fluctuations have always been a large source of inspiration in my work.  I am interested in the natural breakdown of matter and the cycle of birth and death. I’ve been influenced by the rigors and joys of my travels and life experience; a year of personal discovery spent hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and backpacking throughout Southeast Asia as well as my childhood in the fierce, changeable climate of Oklahoma.

My time in Southeast Asia has renewed my interest in Buddhist thought and principles. The Mahābhūta and the four elements; earth, water, fire and air inform and combine with my earliest influences.
