A lifelong Midwesterner, I was raised by an artist and a philosopher so my passion for creation and curiosity began at an early age. Starting with fine art studies in drafting and figure work I moved into photography and then digital abstract collage photography after college. I stayed creatively in that medium for almost fifteen years until my health caused me to steer away from it. Due to chronic migraine forcing me away from screens, I needed to find a way to make art. After fumbling through paints, clay, papers, glues, metals, I found resin to be an interesting tool to merge my love of capturing a movement, freezing color blending, and manipulating my surroundings. By using found objects such as plant life, bone, bugs, I've created small scale tableau of nature in a photographic and collage like way but in a medium where one can touch and not just look at the scene.
