I was born and raised on a small family farm along the San Pedro river valley in the desert of southern Arizona. I spent my childhood barefoot, surrounded by nature and in the company of animals. My rural upbringing led me to see life in a different light, and I strive to transfer this way of thinking from my mind to the canvas. With my background and home in mind, and nature as my greatest inspiration, I use art to spark people’s interest and share the beautiful aspects of life I’ve grown up with.
