I make art that reflects myself and my emotions. I do this to get to know myself better and more intimately. I also hope to allow others to reflect on their vulnerabilities as I open mine to the world. I believe my artwork is a journal of my feelings and I believe that understanding my own emotions has helped me better understand the people around me. My goal for my audience is to make them feel nostalgic and relate to my personal experiences. I hope that my minimal compositions allow my audience to reflect on their own vulnerabilities.

The work I produce has a wide range of mediums such as printmaking, watercolor, acrylic, ceramics, film photography, textiles and fibers. I pull from nature, florals, and vintage color schemes and ideas. These color schemes and ideas often give people a nostalgic feeling, and the natural and floral imagery is often very delicate. I love to play around with colors; mixing vintage color schemes with modern ones. My work is soft, minimal, delicate, and nostalgic and I hope to keep these themes with me as I grow as an artist.
