Art has always been a huge part of my life. Ever since I could hold a pencil I was drawing daily. I was fortunate to be encouraged by my family and friends to pursue this passion. My grandfather specifically was a huge part of this, he painted with oil and inspired me to want to be an artist.
As years progressed into my early teens I started taking painting lessons. Working with a new medium, Acrylic paint, was a blast, I remember being blown away by the bright saturated colors and feel of the paint.
I went on to study art, graphic design, and photography at Keene State College. After school I entered the professional world as a graphic designer at Cannondale Bicycles designing paint and graphics for the entire product line.
After Cannondale I went on to work as a Visual Content Director for NEMO Equipment, an award-winning New England-based designer of innovative outdoor gear.
Photography is a huge part of my life and would love to share some of my favorite images I have taken over the last few years. Wildlife and people are some of my favorite subjects.
Today I am primarily focused on commissions, but still taking time to create art that sings to me. I am always experimenting to push myself to try new techniques and ideas!
