I’m a Chicago based fine artist & illustrator working in painting, drawing and illustration for the past several years. I am also a contemporary modern dancer, musician, and ceramist.

my art and craft have allowed me to deeply observe different elements of mental health, my current focus using artwork as a visual representation of different cognitive behavioral therapies. Through the use of mixed and traditional media i am hope to tell a story about our relentless strength and beauty in how our mental health shapes who we are. through composition, color, and texture. my creation process hopes to create a community to share our relationship with how view ourselves.

I work out of my chicago home studio and i am pursuing a Masters in Art Therapy & counseling.
