I’m an activist and artist born in Eugene, Oregon. I graduated from the University of Oregon in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts. Currently, I live in Corvallis, Oregon and spend most of my time in my downtown art studio oil painting or participating in animal activism. Over the last 11 years, I’ve enjoyed donating prints, original artwork and a portion of my proceeds to various animal rights and human development organizations. My work aims to encourage inner and outer dialogue about the roles we play in urgent and universal topics, working towards reducing suffering and creating a more compassionate coexistence–for animals, humans, and the environment alike. I passionately believe art is more than aesthetics, and more importantly, serves as a conceptual statement and action towards improving ourselves and the world in which we live.
