Growing up, I always had a love for creating. No matter where I went, a pencil and paper were not far behind. Creating has always been an outlet for me, a way to deal with the good times and the bad. It wasn’t until recently that I truly understood just how detrimental art would be to my life.
I graduated early with a BFA from the University of Rhode Island in 2014. Since then I have proudly exhibited work in many group shows and exhibitions at the Jamestown Art Center, Brown University, the Heart Spot Art Center and Gallery, and the Hera Gallery, to name a few. I currently work with the United Rare Disease Foundation as one of their founding volunteer artists in the Beyond the Diagnoses Exhibition. This is by far one of the most rewarding parts of my art career thus far.
My most current body of work explores my own struggles and growths as a young woman. My pieces are driven by memory, mental illness, and the recent losses I have experienced. All of these things have given me the chance to look deeper within myself, searching for answers and comfort. I have discovered my own spirituality and feminine energies. I put these to use in each of my paintings, striving to tell a story with each bush stoke.
