Artist's Statement


Painting is a meditative practice for me; an outlet to release intuitive energy and let go of preconceived notions or self-imposed rules about how I interpret and portray the world. Using palette knives and brushes, I strive to create depth, atmosphere, and escapes on the canvas, often with a focus on the horizon. Details which give clues about season or specific location are not as important as the emphasis on the point where earth and sky meet.  And though reaching that point is never truly possible, it still suggests there is always hope.


I grew up overseas as a “third culture kid” but currently reside in Louisville, KY.  I earned a Master of Architecture with a Minor in Fine Art from Cornell University, and a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Kentucky.  I've been fortunate to have my work receive national recognition and have had to opportunity to exhibit in New York, Chicago, and recently in Ft. Worth, Texas, along with regionally in Kentucky and Ohio. I am represented by New Editions Gallery in Lexington, KY,  and my work can also be found in private collections throughout the country, and corporate collections including Brown-Forman Corporation, PNC Bank, Commonwealth Bank, and the University of Kentucky.​
