Artist Bio:

I was born on a beautiful farm in  Vermont. I couldn’t think of a better place that I would have rather grown up on and it has influenced who I am and my art. My first memories of art were of the children’s books that my mother would read to my brother and I as children. Looking at those illustrations always made me want to draw, although I’ll admit that drawing isn’t my strongpoint. When I first enrolled in college at Plattsburgh University, I wanted to be a photographer, but now I use photography as a tool to paint from. It wasn’t until my first painting class that I fell in love with painting. Although I didn’t believe that I was great at it, I kept it up until I kept getting better. I think that I’m still getting better and have more room for growth. As long as I keep pushing and challenging myself, I know that I will. For me, art is about challenge and expression.

Deterioration Statement:

When I’m taking pictures for things to paint, I’m always looking for something unique that catches my eye. I don’t purposefully search our for things that are deteriorated, but it’s always neat when I do find something that I think will work. I like to walk in the woods behind my house, because there is an area with scrap metal and old farm equipment that my dad has kept. I’m always finding something new to snap a picture of. Some of my favorite paintings came out of it. My reflection in the woods painting is the back of an old headlight that was lying about in this area. I even like natural decay in nature, such as an old rotten tree. Things like this  have a lot of character.
