Creativity, cultivated. 

"I am happy to be alive, as long as I can paint." - Frida Kahlo

I graduated in 2013 from Bradley University with a BFA in Studio Arts. I quickly realized my private school education was based in extreme tradition rather than exploration, and decided to further my education. I studied abroad at the Siena Art Institute in Siena, Italy in 2014. There, is where my conceptual art education was born. I begin working in unconventional mediums - like make-up, to create a conversation based around a woman’s natural beauty, rather than society’s pressurized stigmas of beauty.

Starting to work in unconventional mediums opened my eyes, and just over year ago I began creating my own eco-friendly dyes with sustainability in mind.

I'm currently exploring the conceptual nature of my personal work while creating beautiful custom work for clients. Working as a self-supportive artist has been my lifelong dream. Here I am, I have arrived. Your support, in any form is much appreciated. You, have allowed me to live my dream. 

So thank you, for taking a genuine interest in what I'm creating.
