Artist Statement



Everywhere you dream to go can become a part of you and everywhere you have been is a part of you.

I am an explorer and optimist at heart, so when I set out to create something one word always comes to mind: Possibilities

I feel that through art I can explore the visions in my mind, everything from a small flower or blade of grass to distant worlds filled with whimsy and thoughts of what if…….

Culturally I have two aspects that influence me one being my Native American ancestry and the other my German immigrant ancestry.
I am deeply rooted in the beauty and wonderment of nature. My wise grandmother told me if you have strong roots your sprit can fly anywhere and still return home. That saying has always stuck with me and in many ways sparked my imagination.

The explorer in me must come from my immigrant ancestry. My great grandfather’s family traveled to America on a steam ship in 1874. I can imagine them traveling for what must have seemed like an eternity. I often contemplate what they must have been thinking, and try to express the excitement of the unknown and the anticipation of infinite possibilities in my art
