I am a mixed media artist and maker, and both are an intrinsic part of who I am. From an early age, I have found that I gain great feelings of accomplishment, enthusiasm, and stimulation when I create things myself. I make things primarily through intuition and focus of what brings harmony and interest via my own senses – be that in my artwork, cooking, or crafting – rather than more formulaic or prescriptive approaches.
I studied industrial design in college and learned how to apply design-thinking and problem solving to my creative pursuits. When I lost my father in 2019, I found a renewed dedication and focus on my artwork that allowed me to begin working through the grief of losing a parent and feel more connected to his memory. Since that time, I have been honing my art style and incorporating a regular creative practice into my life.
I live in Catonsville, MD (a suburb of Baltimore) with my husband, two children, and two cats. During the day, I work in digital strategy at an international digital agency. My interests include reading, cooking, traveling, yoga, and studying Italian language.
