About me

About Me:

Born in Milwaukee in 1986, I have made art for as long as I can remember. I consider my creativity a gift passed down from my mother’s side. I can recall my grandmother teaching me needlepoint and my mother teaching me to knit as a child. My work deals with the invisible connections between all things.

Although I have always had a love for the arts, for the longest time fear prevented me from pursuing it. It was only after graduating from college in 2010 with a degree in linguistics and no good prospects for a job that I decided to take the plunge to go back to school to gain the skills needed in visual arts. In the spring of 2014, I left art school to pursue a career as an artist. Since then, I have concentrated on building my body of work. I was partnered with artist Della Wells for the 2015 MARN mentors program.

I create abstract works of art in a variety of media, from fibers to metals to acrylics. I am also the host of a podcast called “The Curious Artist” in which I interview a diverse group of artists about the art world.

I have sold my jewelry at the Sparrow Collective and the Hummingbirch gallery as well. You can read more about my adventures in art and jewelry design on my blog. I started to teach myself how to paint in the spring of 2015.

I  make handmade jewelry using copper and brass. If you want to check out my jewelry, click here: jewelry
