In addition to pursuing art, she works for a non-profit organization called The Association For a More Just Society (AJS) as the Director of Programs.


Artist Statement:

"My work focuses on drawing, painting, and collage, and I enjoy finding beauty in the everyday ordinary. I believe art is a platform that can be used to tell a bigger story, challenge everyday thinking, and effect change. When something is on my heart, the artist inside of me screams with ideas until I have found a way to visually portray it to others - it's a sort of artist obligation that I have. I believe art and the story it tells should be beautiful, respectful, and challenging."
