About Me

My Work

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.


I currently teach introductory to advanced art classes in San Jose, CA. My experience working with children and the arts ranges from teaching in public schools, after school programs, private art academies and even some teaching abroad.
