ABOUT

I'm originally from the Adirondack region of New York, where I received my BFA in painting in 2017. During college, I spent a summer exploring the western coast of Ireland, where I painted in plein air every day for months. I fell in love with painting when my Nana showed me how to paint at the age of six. I paint because it gives me a sense of clarity, like the feeling after a long run. Professionally, I've taught painting workshops as a Resident Artist at The Resort at Paws Up, a luxury ranch in western Montana. I've shown in galleries in New York, Chicago, Missoula, and Park City. Some of my large-scale murals are tucked away in private homes across New York and Park City as well.

Most of my time is spent paintings in my home studio or working on design and illustration projects. Currently living in Portland, OR with the best dog in the world, Louie LaGoy.
