Many people take comfort in the bathroom towels matching the color of the rugs beneath their feet. It provides a semblance of order in a universe where we have little control. We are but ephemera in the grand scheme of things, yet we often cling to physical comforts and the “matching towels” of society to drown out this reality.
I have always been fascinated by humanity’s relationship with its impermanence. As a developing artist and painter, I love to explore such topics through my work. I strive to create pieces that invite viewers to question, with me, the attitudes, fears, and unwritten rules that inform our behavior towards those around us and the environment itself.
I was born and raised in Colorado, and initially angled towards a career in design. After spending my early adult years studying architecture, I realized that my heart belonged to fine art, and chose to explore that road instead. Although I’m experienced with mediums like ink and watercolor, my first love is acrylic.
Over the past two years my love of painting has gone from hobby to obsession as I seek to develop my craft at every turn. My artwork has been accepted into several galleries around Denver and Boulder, with more soon to come (you can see my work below).
I am thrilled to be a part of the Reed Family where love of the creative process is an overriding passion. Discovering printing and finishing solutions that will best enhance the artist’s work is my goal at Reed. When the artist realizes their vision, that is when I know I have realized mine.
I feel the significance of each artist’s design as they go about creating an imprint that will live on well after we are gone. The longevity of Reed’s work is the antithesis to our impermanence, and I am grateful to play a role in that perpetuation.
