The desire I have to create, traces back to when I was five years old. I had a love for horses which drove me to draw them. I would sit with my doodle sketch filling the page with horse drawings, erase and repeat. I also have kept a journal since I was five, and would frequently record my life events and emotions through drawing. The work I am doing today is influenced by learning how to express my emotion visually when I was young.
I began to get more serious about art in high school. Mr. Baume, my professor, unleashed a passion for drawing in me that has taken me to where I am today. Growing up in the Denver area allowed for frequent visits to the Denver Art Museum where I was exposed to paintings by Albert Bierstadt. I was completely spell bound by Bierstadt’s paintings which inspired me to create work that would have the same effect on people. The passion I have to create led me to Western State Colorado University where I received my BFA in painting in May 2016. The artwork I am creating today is very personal; I strive to be honest with my viewers in hopes to connect with them on a deeper level.
