I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, spending most of my life in either Alaska or Washington state. Since going to college in California, traveling around the country, and now living in Oregon, 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 I’ve recently started mountain biking with my husband.
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.
