I am an artist that works primarily in painting 

who is returning to the professional world of art.  

I was born in Ithaca, New York and raised in Waukesha, Wisconsin.  

I attended the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design where I graduated from in 2010. I work primarily in Encaustic and oil painting, but I also work with book arts and do creative writing. I also am proficient with wax mediums, guache, and egg tempera. 

My work varies in subject matter involving the figure and working with the content around them, including the relationships we have with other people and with animals.

I work in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I live with my husband and our two dogs, two cats, two salamanders, a mouse, and some sea monkeys.

Unrelatedly, I am the assistant general manager of the County Clare, Irish Pub and Inn where I manage the marketing. I am also proficient in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe InDesign.
