Growing up on a farm in rural Iowa, my first memory of drawing as a small child is sitting at a makeshift desk in the corner of the barn while my mother cared for the animals. I have been drawing ever since.


Simplicity and complexity of line


German Expressionism

Folk and fairy tales

Gears, antique clocks  and music boxes

I am driven to draw and sketch wherever I go, and I especially love to study people and plants.
