One way that my creativity makes its way out into the world is through my work as an artist. I create large oil paintings on canvas, mostly of massive Midwestern landscapes and skyscapes. I’m humbled by the Midwestern expanse of land and sky, and inspired by the powerful and bold spaces that I am lucky to call home.

I was born and raised in Iowa and I grew up visiting farms in the Northeast Iowa, where my family hails from. I later married into a family that also has there and through them I came to know the most beautiful place on earth - four hundred acres of heaven - a century farm, miles from what could be considered anywhere. It was this place, and these people, that inspired me to paint landscapes. I knew what a traditional landscape should look like, but I hoped that I could paint something that would relay how I felt when I was a part of these landscapes—standing at the crest of the hill pieces, dwarfed by the giant hay bales, humbled by the massive clouds overhead and great expansiveness of scenery around me. I realized that these landscapes would be different, that these vistas were more powerful than passive, saturated with color, and awe-inspiring in their scale.
