I was raised in a large, loud family of ten where I was always encouraged to play, draw, and create with my hands. My siblings and I grew up homeschooled in Minneapolis, MN, aside from three years of my childhood spent in the remote mountains of Central Asia. In 2017, I graduated from a small liberal arts college in Minnesota with majors in Studio Art and German. Off and on I find myself living in the lovely country of Germany, trying very hard to get my articles right.

I'm currently based in Fairbanks, AK, with my husband and daughter.


Besides painting and drawing, I love thrifting, fall camping, outdoor seating at wine bars, all things Swedish, and crossword puzzles.
