Native of California, living in Seattle, Washington. MFA degree from Johnson State College, Vermont. Painter, musician, writer. Please check out my music at http://iacmusic.com/artist.aspx?id=128691. I went through my undergrad as a printmaker and have experimented with many genres. I have settled as a landscape painter, but work entirely from memory and imagination. I'm inspired by all the places I've been in my life and how each has seared itself on my soul. I have done a lot of traveling alone and like to portray the impact of discovering a new place when there is no one there to share it with.
