Biography

Ive always wanted to be an artist so I lucked out growing up in the suburbs of Chicago Illinois. Currently I am working on a digital format to be more economic but I do love traditional painting styles like water colors and gouache. Fantasy has always been a passion of mine; it honestly was a form of escapism for me as a lonely shy girl. I would sit for hours a day, dreaming an adventure for me and drawing them out, while at the beginning they were heavily influenced by Disney and Nintendo media, they are now more personal to me as an adult who is living through a historical world event. My next goal is to get my MFA in drawing so that someday I can become an art professor and give the spark of passion for the arts like the teachers before me.

Artist Statement

Ever since I was a little girl, I viewed the world around me as a magical place and anything and everything was an adventure. As a young, impressionable child with a wild imagination, I would turn a stressful math class into a duel to the death with numbers as my weapons on my math notes instead of actually doing the math. Without knowing it, the imagination of the stories I read were the only place I felt I belonged. Now as an adult living in weird, unprecedented times and surprising health complications, I find comfort and relaxation turning to my love for anything fantasy as escapism. As an artist I want to capture the highs, the lows, the adventure, and the intimate moments in a story, so others can find that same level of escapism and unbridled sense of wonder I have.
