I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, itching to see the world. After college, I spent my twenties traveling the globe and living and working in Beirut, Lebanon. My education and experiences eventually earned me a job in Washington and a life defined by D.C. traffic and deadlines.
I had to ask, is this all there is?
That’s when I decided to make the leap from cubicle servitude to painting. I now split my time between painting, bringing my creativity to my job at the local library and traveling around Europe!
My Goals for this Blog
Most of all, this is a chronicle of my artistic journey. I discuss the inspiration behind my work and my creative process. However, I also want to share what I’ve learned on my journey in hopes of inspiring other like-minded folks. People who, like me, have left behind a secure but unsatisfying career to create a more meaningful, creative life. I love to travel almost as much as I love art, so you will also find regular travel essays and write-ups of international art historic sites and exhibits.
