About the Artist:
I am a 27 year old artist who grew up and currently lives in western Massachusetts. I work in many different mediums but gravitate towards oil paints. I enjoy plein air (outdoor) painting during the summers, and create more surrealistic and symbolic work during the colder months.
I graduated Amherst College with a B.A. in 2012. My majors were Fine Arts and Environmental Studies.
Available on this site is a very small percent of my work.
Having grown up in the beautiful Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, my works have been deeply influenced by the enchanted landscapes provided in abundance within this region. It is important that we learn to appreciate and have a respectful relationship with our environment and I strive to address this in my landscape and surrealist work. I am also interested in the idea that art can become an access way to more subconscious ideas, opinions and emotions, which we can so easily forget to acknowledge in the fast-paced world we live in.
