Hello!

I am an artist who makes illustrative paintings and drawings. In my work I use elements of fantasy and allegory to explore themes of life, death, and rebirth. I live with my husband, daughter, and crowd of pets in Lincoln, NE.

When I was growing up my family moved many times, and every new home held mysteries and secrets. I dreamed of hidden stairways that led to unknown attics, or cellars underneath that held forgotten treasures. I knew I could get there if I just kept looking. That low door is still elusive, but when I pick up my pencil or paint brush I can find it for a little while. When I paint I try to bring some of that magic country back with me.
