Growing up in the Adirondacks has sparked my love for exploring nature’s hidden beauties. My work is an expression of the freedom and fluidity that partners with the growth of nature. Flowers in particular have sparked my interest for most of my college portfolio, the encounters of these captured scenes throughout my travels has become an main influence for my work for a few years now.
This is a collection of work that displays the idea of overtaking growth. Through a series of floral paintings, they display unforgiving paths that plants will take. My goal for this ever growing body of work, is to continue to discover these scenes and explore the interaction they have with the structures or life surrounding them.
I grew up in Old Forge, NY. My family moved from Utica, NY in 2000. I graduated from Town of Webb UFSD in 2015. I am currently a senior at SUNY Potsdam as a BFA Candidate with a concentration in Painting, and on an Art Education track. I will be graduating this coming May 2019. I am currently completing my professional semester through St. Lawrence University, student teaching at Parishville-Hopkinton Central School District in Parishville, NY, This entails working with students K-12 in the art room.
