Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting and Drawing at University of Utah
I make art founded on the human experience. Life, death, tragedy, joy, loneliness, spirituality, and progression are concepts central to how I view this experience. Growing up in a family with all boys, it was difficult for me to identify with women. My work often explores the feminine experience as I attempt to understand myself and all women more fully and view them the way I see them - powerful yet flawed.
