Welcome to my site! I am a 23-year-old studio artist from Richmond, Virginia. I am currently studying at Virginia Commonwealth University's School of the Arts, planning to graduate this upcoming spring of 2019.
I create art that is full of energy, passion, and excitement. My art expresses the liveliness I see in the world around me. I aim to seek wonder and excitement in everyday lives. In my stronger pieces there is rarely one technique going on. I like to paint, draw, and use mixed media; incorporating my own photography or pulling apart old vinyl cover art. As a senior in high school I began to randomly design and craft crazy, nonlinear patterns. I took geometric shapes and combined them with lines, swirls, arrows, or wave crescents. On canvas, paired with a brushstroke of thick acrylic paint they resembled graffiti markings. I learned to incorporate these distinctive markings in my pieces as a way of making them belong to me.
