ABOUT THE ARTIST

While Greenville, Ohio is the place I happily call home, I am originally from Northeast Ohio (ALL the way northeast, in the heart of the snowbelt). My journey from one side of the state to the other inspires much of my work. You will find scenes from my new home in Darke County as well as memories of growing up near Lake Erie and working on a dairy farm.

By working with oil paints, I create pieces that show texture on the canvas. Each brushstroke documents my artistic journey and captures the energy of the brush as it moves across the surface. Viewers can expect more than a material object from my paintings. They are conversation pieces that capture both memories and experiences.

You can be a part of my artistic story as well. I currently accept commission work and love bringing special memories to life for my collectors. Click here for more information.
