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. My childhood experiences of living on the farm and being raised in a farming community still influence the person I am today. I communicate the 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. Everything I create has historical and sentimental significance to my past and presence and is in relation to my own personal story.
