I began to paint after a traumatic brain injury I experienced at the age of 16 and have been inspired beyond words to paint ever since. I’ve grown up with such a love for riding horses since I was young; as well as a love for being in the mountains and other wilderness areas of the Western United States. Now I spend a lot of my time in the mountains, and my painting is an expression of my love and passion for these things as well as the expression and creativity of self.
