"I create mixed media art with paint, ink, and upcycled materials. My art is my outlet. I never know what my pieces are going to look like until they are complete. I love that about my work. I’m inspired by complex, strong, emotional, brave and beautiful people. I want to encourage people to be empowered. Mental health and mental health awareness is important to me. I try to capture this in my art. I am raising daughters and I want to encourage them to be kind, happy, fearless and supported. 

When I am working in the studio, the world around me shuts down. The work consumes me. 

The process is therapeutic."
