Words from The Artist

This body of work is born out of my intense love and reverence for nature. It is a love letter to earth, a melancholy response to the growing threats to our natural environment. I hope to reveal a particular beauty and fragility imbued with an encroaching possibility of loss. 

Photography has played an important role in informing my paintings. I use photography to capture that moment in nature that stops me in my tracks. I try to distill that feeling while referring back to that moment while painting. I feel as though it all comes full circle as the photos then become an extension of my paintings.

After several years on the road touring with acts such as Big Smith, Cornmeal, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and countless other Missouri-based bands, she began a solo project with just her violin, cello, voice, and a looping-effects pedal that allows her to record herself, and play multiple lines at one time.
