Artist Statement

I was born and raised as a Midwest farm girl, daughter to a Nebraska farmer and an elementary school teacher. The saying “You can take a girl off of the farm, but you can’t take the farm outta the girl” resonates within me every day. I know that my early childhood experiences of living on the farm and being raised in a farming community still influence the person I am today. I communicate nostalgia, appreciation, love and admiration that I have for my farm life upbringing through my work, whether it be imagery of farmscapes, portraits of family members or abstract constructions of memories involving symbolism. Every thing I create has historical and sentimental significance to my past and presence and is in relation to my own personal story.
