My work explores the horizons and landscapes of the Western U.S. specifically Texas, California, and the highways in between. Born and raised in Texas, I spent time living in L.A. attending graduate school at Otis College of Art + Design for my MFA. While living in L.A., I gained a new insight on nostalgia and how atmosphere can be tied to the character of a specific location. I like to consider my work as a virtual road trip for the viewer; traveling across landscapes and visually weaving a narrative of wanderlust. My paintings highlight elements of architecture, Americana, and the natural landscape to amplify those themes.
