I am a watercolorist, Alaskan born and raised, whose creativity has been nurtured by Alaska’s landscapes throughout my life. Initially drawn to watercolor’s expressive spontaneity and stubbornness, I have continued to develop my creative vision and deepen my connection to the medium by following the curiosity that drives my inspiration throughout Alaska.
My collaborative relationship with watercolor conjures the spirit of a landscape, and invokes a universal nostalgia that inspires reciprocity and a deeper connection to nature. I seek the quiet, nuanced beauty of simplicity and softness that is often overlooked and under-appreciated amongst the grandiose and obvious. My work is a reflection of the infinite, intangible, and ethereal qualities of the natural world.
