I was born and raised in Massachusetts. I’ve always had a bit of a creative bent, from theatre cast and crew in high school to painting, crafting, and photographing for fun ever since. My full-time career is in environmental planning and coastal policy, and it’s taken me to some incredibly beautiful places. I’ve picked up a lot of inspiration from the coastal towns I lived in and visited. After three years as a Cape Cod washashore, I moved to Connecticut and got married. Painting is my way of writing love letters to the places I miss, and challenging myself to keep on adventuring and exploring new places.
