About Me

From cartoon doodles to abstract expressions, my artistic journey ignited in the heart of Dallas. My teenage years were filled with scribbling characters and worlds, planting the seeds of a creative life. After high school, graphic design blossomed as a passion, leading me to delve into college courses where art and communication intertwined. This became the fertile ground where I discovered a unique voice - abstract portraits and figures, embodying the beauty and complexity of human stories.

Though my path diverged from a formal art or graphics degree, it took a powerful turn towards social work. Earning both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the field led me to a deeply rewarding career supporting children within the child welfare system. Today, my life embraces a beautiful dual rhythm: the quiet, introspective world of artistic creation and the vibrant energy of community service. Both fuel my soul, one channeling raw emotions onto canvas, the other nurturing dreams and resilience in young hearts.




My artistic journey is woven from the intricate threads of personal trauma, societal reflections, and the indomitable spirit of resilience. Within the tapestry of my art, I navigate the depths of personal experiences, particularly those within the child welfare system, unraveling their profound impact on lives and the extraordinary strength that rises from within.

My visual narratives pay homage to the raw vulnerability and unwavering fortitude embedded in these stories. Through my art, I illuminate the universal human capacity for healing and growth, fostering empathy and understanding for experiences often shrouded in silence.

In parallel, I challenge the rigid constructs of conventional beauty. By dissecting societal expectations and norms, I strive to reveal the inherent diversity and unique expressions that reside within each individual. My art celebrates the unconventional and the marginalized, sparking conversations that question the limitations imposed by cultural constraints.

My artistic process embraces a symphony of mixed media, where textures, materials, and symbols interweave, mirroring the multifaceted nature of the themes I explore. This approach allows me to experiment and embrace organic evolution, often leading to unexpected discoveries and profound revelations.

Ultimately, my art aspires to be an invitation to introspection. I hope to inspire viewers to question the status quo, find solace and empowerment in exploring personal narratives, and discover the transformative power of beauty amidst vulnerability. By interlacing these narratives, I aim to create a space where stories are shared, understood, and celebrated, paving the way for collective evolution.

My desire is to ignite meaningful conversations, cultivate empathy, and nurture a deeper understanding of the human experience. I dream of creating a space where resilience is recognized, personal narratives are valued, and viewers are compelled to delve into their own stories and connect with the intricate tapestry that binds us all.
