My current body of work focuses on North American wildlife and the cycles of energy in nature. My process involves a lot of research on different animals, including their behavior, diet and anatomy. I document this research in sketchbooks and playfully reorganize the information at this stage. In final pieces, I use watercolor and inks on paper, mylar and yupo paper.
I live and work in Jamaica Plain, MA and grew up in Newton, New Hampshire. In 2007, I received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art. My love of nature stems from my childhood, spending summers camping and hiking and winters skiing. I continue to travel to natural areas to rejuvenate, most recently Baxter State Park where I was inspired by watching moose.
