I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, spending most of my life between Alaska and Washington state. Since living in every west coast state and traveling around the country I feel I have finally found home. Portland to me has the perfect blend of nature and city. I am loving exploring my new surroundings. Including visits to local hot springs, hiking, camping, walking on the beach, and trying new restaurants.
I am also an artist. Mostly painting with encaustics, but also drawing and photography. I am inspired by nature and my own dreams and memories.
