Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, my art is deeply rooted in the beauty of the mountain, forest and coastal ranges of the west.
In the fall of 2017 I took a giant leap of faith, I stepped away from the security and comfort of my day job as an apparel designer to travel, to experience, to explore and most of all to enjoy life. I soon found that the experiences I was having, and the amazing people I met along the way lead me back into the world of design and art - this time as a freelancer and often from a table (in a friends kitchen, a restaurant or coffee shop) in a foreign country or new city.
Travel may look a little different in today's world, and the road ahead may be more uncertain. But the heart is still there and the experiences we have, the people we interact with along the way are all still helping shape our creativity and inspiration.
Range Design Studio was launched in the heart of the mountains when I found my way to (and temporary residence in) the Grand Teton's. I focused on bringing design, company branding, and marketing to communities, nonprofits, local businesses and artists. During that time, my own passion for making art and painting was reignited, and so began my pursuit as an artist, maker and designer.
