My paintings are inspired by memories, emotion, spirituality, dreams and environmental energy. I also make work with the intention to just play and let the artwork guide my process.
Through my practice and study of art I have been fortunate enough to explore a range of subjects and be inspired by the artists around me including my peers and mentors. I tend to work playfully and experimentally by often letting my mood, or interest in a specific media determine my next project.
Originally from Orange County CA, I moved to Long Beach for my BA in Art Education and Credential. Later I moved to the Bay Area to earn my MA in Transformative Arts and then to continue teaching in San Jose CA.
