I was born in Bar Harbor and grew up in Winter Harbor. I attended Rhode Island School of Design and graduated with a BFA in graphic design. I taught at Heron School of Art in Indianapolis for three years. I lived in Boston, and came back to Maine to work at the Dixon Estate in Winter Harbor as their head gardener. I managed their greenhouse and gardens until 2015. That job afforded me a winter vacation, and I started painting and was able to travel. I currently live in Town Hill.
