About

Hello

Nice to meet you

Moments of childhood wonder, details in nature, and the strength of community inspire me. My art is rooted in reflections on the power of feeling seen and the journey to feel at home with all the different facets of ourselves. I love to mentally collect textures on leaves and petals, which I transform into graphic patterns throughout my art.

Making art is a place for me to feel fully. It’s the moment when I can look inward, untangle my experiences, sometimes find joy, and then push that feeling outward in the form of making something. I hope the experiences and joy that I infuse in my art will result in connection, belonging, and delight for someone else.

Outside of the studio I love reading cookbooks, painting with my nieces, baking birthday cakes, and hiking in the beautiful outdoor spaces of California with my husband and dog.
