The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing to find the place where all beauty came from.
— C.S. Lewis, "Surprised by Joy"

My Story

I have been creating my whole life (beginning with loads of horse drawings, naturally), leading me to study studio arts at Iowa State University and earn my BFA there. Shortly after graduation, I worked with a nonprofit student organization in Amsterdam for two years, building relationships with international students and gleaning inspiration from the glittering, rain-soaked streets, gleaming tram-tracks, and rich artistic history of the city. After my two-year term, I returned to Iowa to pursue my passion to create and stir people's hearts and minds with my artwork.

I have since returned to the Netherlands after getting married, and I now live in Amsterdam with my husband while working full time as an artist!
