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 dabble in a variety of art forms, however, my main focus consists of drawing representational self-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 drawing process to work through the highs, the lows, and everything in between. Vocalizing shared struggles through creative platforms, whether through exhibitions or workshops, allows a safe space for honest dialogue and healthy connections within and beyond a community. My hope is to inspire and share the outlets and resources that shine a light on the darkness. 

"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
