About the Idaho Falls Arts Council
Since its founding in 1990, the Idaho Falls Arts Council has committed to hosting an array of events, arts, performances, and venues to feature local and international talent within Idaho Falls and its surrounding areas. Now consisting of the Willard Arts Center, the historic Colonial Theater, the ARTitorium, and the Civic Center, these settings provide the means to annually raise $2.7 million toward the local community in the form of art galleries, 10 - 16 mainstage shows, 8 visual arts exhibitions, and community events all year long. The continued support of its volunteers and over 60 staff members accommodate the thousands of individuals who partake in the local arts community.

Feeling Most Alive Outside
"I view myself as an accidental artist, because this creative journey was somewhat unintentional. I majored in Education and Statistics, and after teaching for several years I decided I needed a creative outlet. I started with simple sketches then experimented with other mediums until I finally discovered my infinity and love for watercolor. The way the colors flow, bleed, and layer hold my focus for hours at a time. I also love the sharp detail of ink. The contrast of fluid color and precise linework are a large part of my unique style. I continue to learn new techniques and experiment with different materials in an effort to perfect my process.
When I’m not teaching or creating I spend a lot of time outside. It’s what I truly enjoy and it leaves me feeling recharged. I strengthen my body and soul by hiking, backpacking, canyoneering, road biking, mountain biking, running, playing soccer, Nordic skiing, and snowboarding.
I intended this to be an entirely personal artistic journey, but ended up selling some of my pieces after receiving several requests. Inspired by my original creations I later received requests for commissions and collaborations. I’ve enjoyed sharing my creative process with others, and I look forward to sharing it with you as well."
