My artwork conveys my internal struggles and illustrates injustice faced by people throughout society. It is deeply satisfying when people react not only positively to my art but also with empathy, and can relate to the messages presented. Seeing my work resonate with people lets me know I’m not alone in my battles, and that keeps me inspired to continue.

I work primarily with paint and mixed drawing media. I'm also an apprentice tattoo artist. I enjoy that through my tattoos my art becomes a physical part of someone else. A bond is created between myself as an artist and the client whose skin becomes permanently embedded with my art.

My work revolves around exploring my own sense of identity, the human body, and our connection to the natural world around us. I enjoy manipulating the human figure, combining it with elegant floral imagery, and experimenting with landscape elements. I seek to create a narrative between ourselves and the environment in which we live.

I AM NOW OFFICIALLY A REAL 👏 FULLY LICENSED 👏 TATTOO 👏 ARTIST!!! 🤘🤘
It's been a wild ride taking on an apprenticeship, working fulltime elsewhere, and then going back to school to finish my degree (which, by the way, I'll be graduating in December) bc I LOVE running myself ragged -- it's the best!!! 😂

On a serious note, I have had such incredible positive growth in my life in recent years, and I attribute a lot of my success to having such amazing & supportive people in my life. I am surrounded by friends & family who have been by my side, who have seen me at my worst and lowest points in life, and continue to encourage me to just keep doing better. Y'all are the best.

I have a wonderful boyfriend who has helped me work through my insecurities and pushed me toward breaking back out of my shell to take chances and simply try new things. He gets crazy excited for me when I accomplish even the smallest goals. 💖💕

I have some hella rad friends who have been more than patient with me thru all of my horrible life choices in the past when others chose to walk away.
I have family continuing to cheer me on and support my work, which means so much to me.

I've had many amazing teachers in my life both throughout high school and college who have motivated me in so many ways to continue learning and to push thru the hard times.

And of course, I have been granted the pleasure to work with such beautiful, talented, good-humored, and supportive women at The Tattooed Lady. I could not ask for a more easy-going group of people and positive environment to grow in. I have learned so much and continue to press onward with high hopes and bigger dreams.
