Artist statement: “Art has been one of my passions since I was very young. In high school, my focus was on ceramics, mostly pottery, and photography. Since high school, I did some traveling around Colorado and went to New Zealand for two months, so I took a lot of photos and worked on landscape photography. Since I got back, I had some issues and injuries to my hips. I had surgery on both. Spent three out of six months using crutches, a month in braces, and did countless hours of physical therapy. Because I could not go outside and do the things I love, I spent a lot of time painting to express my love for the outdoors. Now that I am back outside hiking, biking, snowboarding, and skiing, I have continued to paint. Whenever I am outdoors, I think of how I would paint what is surrounding me. I feel even more inspired and I hope to inspire those around me to appreciate the outdoors.”
