Thank you!

Through creative expression we find beauty in flaws, needed self-reflection, and deeper connections with each other. Art has continuously proven to be beneficial to our individual and collective growth, health, and humanity. As a multidisciplinary Artist,  I create using a variety of art forms like painting murals, writing and illustrating, however, my main focus consists of drawing representational portraits with pencil on wood panels. Sometimes a song inspires a gesture or pose but mostly it’s an emotion that I can’t escape. With a narrative pulled directly from my personal experiences in life, motherhood and mental health challenges, I utilize the creative process to work through the highs, lows, and everything in between. Vocalizing shared struggles through creative platforms, whether through exhibitions, workshops, or public engagement, allows a safe space for honest dialogue and healthy connections within and beyond a community. When I'm not creating I'm advocating for accessible art, opportunities and resources for fellow artists through my local volunteer efforts.  My hope is to inspire and share the outlets and resources that have and continue to save me. 

"Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything - anger, anxiety, or possessions - we cannot be free." - Thich Nhat Hanh
