As an artist, I am inspired by the world around me and love to immerse myself in other cultures and artistic expression. As a child, I had a keen interest in history, mythology, and drawing. Throughout my life, I have been exposed to many varieties of art in visiting museums and installations. All of these experiences encouraged my creativity, and I experimented with a lot of different media. I began to explore collage in high school, then later, as I took classes in college. My process evolved through an exploration of visual texture and the use of print as pattern and color. My pieces portray a variety of subjects drawing inspiration from story-telling and human emotion.
I received an Associate of Science degree from Salt Lake Community College in General Studies with honors in 2013, then two degrees for Illustration and Graphic design with honors in 2017. I have shown pieces in the Tubac Center for Arts "Arizona Aqueous XX" Show, the Salt Lake Community College "President's Art Show," the Urban Arts Gallery "Self" Art Show. I also showed in the Salt Lake Community College "Student Art Showcase," where I received an Award of Merit and an Honorable Mention.
