I'm a Michigan girl and was raised on our big beautiful lake.
I live with my fiancé Dave in the big city of Chicago, and we spend long weekends retreating to the calm of northern Michigan. My favorite days are spent near the water, exploring new and old places, laughing with my sister, and celebrating holidays with friends and my big family. I love moseying through art galleries, meeting new people, and learning how to be a better human. I could never pick a favorite color - it changes with my mood. One day, we want to live near nature and be close to adventures. I want to grow my own garden and have a big family. My favorite compliment is that I remind someone of my parents. My mom is an art teacher, my dad is an excellent craftsman, and they both have impeccable taste for interior design.
I’m 50% homebody, 50% adventure seeker.
I’m inspired by what’s happening outside, and try to bring that inside to complement your home. I frequently consider those little moments that make up our days. Slow mornings, good coffee and vinyl records. Lighthearted chatter overheard at the beach. Sun and shadows playing on a figure. The warmth of the sand and the rhythm of the waves. Long talks with sweet friends, sharing our hearts.
I look for the good in people and focus on the joy.
I currently am a full time physical therapist and pursue painting in my free time. I love helping people and find the human body fascinating, partly why many of my paintings focus on the human figure. I believe human interaction and relationships are some of life’s most important gifts and I’ve leaned on my friends and family to help me during both challenging and exciting times and I hope I’ve done the same for them. I try to capture the imperfect beauty of humans and our social interaction in my work, to evoke nostalgia and comfort.
Thank you for stopping by to learn about my work and myself. It means more than you know.
