In an act of bravery I accepted a commission for 3 paintings before I had ever so much as picked up a paint brush. I had 8 months to deliver. The project felt like falling down one of Alice’s rabbit holes and I was hooked!

Mountains and ghosts are my muses. The beauty of decay has always captured my imagination. Ghost buildings of the west with their peeling layered images visually connect us to our history and our stories. I want to reimagine those spaces in my work.
