I am inspired by the beauty of nature and painting flowers feels like meditation. I love capturing the vibrant colors and perfect imperfection of every leaf and petal. The inability to fully control watercolor allows me to be present and constantly in awe of the magic it can create.

After graduating with a BFA in painting from Parsons the New School for Design and living in Brooklyn for nearly 10 years, I moved to Western North Carolina. I love my little town of Canton where I live with my partner, two children, and a cat named Bagel.
