I was born in 1982 in Pasadena, California. After attending public art high school in Los Angeles, I went to Boston for college, at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. I have been a full time artist for a little over two years now, supporting myself through international painting and print sales from my shop on Etsy, and commission work. My paintings are inspired by daydreams, retreat and the formidable nature outside my window. I live and work in the tiny hillside town of Jenner, California, where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean, about an hour and a half north of San Francisco with my artist husband Kai Samuels-Davis.
