About the Artist

I was born and raised in Wenatchee, WA. When asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I’ve only ever had one answer: to be an artist. In pursuit of this purpose, I attended the University of Washington where I earned a BFA in Printmaking and a BA in General Art. In 2007 I was introduce to encaustic painting. After one evening surrounded by molten beeswax based paints, blow torches, and melting wax, my love for printmaking was stolen away by encaustic painting, and there it remains.
