Biography or Personal Statement Travel, culture, nature, and folktales...these are the main sources of inspiration for my artwork. Growing up in small town America, running barefoot every summer, and crafting with any medium I could, I pull from the unabashed joy of my childhood and utilize my love for new adventures and storytelling to craft a bold and colorful narrative.

My art is primitive in style and unapologetic in attitude; I often choose to make art on subjects for which I am particularly passionate: civil rights (particularly women’s rights), chronic illness, and celebrating heritage. I enjoy working with watercolor and acrylic to convey modern folk art.
