I am a multi-media artist working predominantly in painting, illustration, photography, and digital media. Since I was a small child I have been obsessed with imaginative stories and the spaces they take place in. In my work, I often fabricate an unreality to imply a non-linear narrative derived from ancient mythologies and their influence on contemporary experiences. Through a cathartic recreation of ambiguous reveries often inspired by dreams, my work connects memories to imaginative contexts.
As an educator, I see the essential heart of the creative process as as problem solving and the purpose of education as fostering the implicit curiosity within all to understand and affect the world around us.
I graduated from Metropolitan State University of Colorado with a BFA in Art Education, concentrating in Photography. Currently I teach art at Beach Court Elementary, am Program Director for Make-A-Movie Workshop, and am a Gallery Assistant at ArtGym.
