I was born in Dover, Delaware in 1989. As a young child I would spend my days walking around the neighborhood drawing rose bushes and interesting trees. This excitement of seeking out, discovering and recording motifs in nature stirred a passion for art that has turned into a steady fire. My work in any medium is aimed at this beauty found in nature and the systems of living that contrast or constrict the natural growth of the organisms that these systems are made of. I work mostly in graphite, charcoal, oil paints, and ceramics but very much enjoy pushing my media and ideas in any way I can.
