My art has always been an outlet for my feelings and emotions. Seeing other artists overcome life obstacles through their artwork inspires me. I started with doodling my favorite cartoon characters while a young child in after school programs and have evolved to creating emotional portraits and figures. Those portraits and figures have been able to display the thoughts I cannot verbalize. I try to paint my expressions on another subject’s form to help me process what I’m feeling. I want my drawings and paintings to help people like me realize that the full spectrum of our emotions are beautiful and worth acknowledging, even the "negative" ones. As my perspective on life grows, my art will congruently grow to involve more mediums, colors, and content. I will continue to challenge myself with new conceptual expression and art forms.

Beyond highschool, she spent time under the wing of illustrious artist Mary Fisher, while further educating herself as an artist, pushing beyond the scope of her comfort zones.
As of now, she is continually delving into the realms of bold new mediums such as digital painting, body art, wood burning, photography, prosthetic cosmetics, and compositing.
