One thing I love about art is how personal it is, while simultaneously reaching out to a mass audience through our common threads.

People often ask me about my work...what does it mean? What is it? My response... 'It is whatever you want it to be'. I say that for a few reasons. What I see and feel about a piece is only relative to me. Most people, when told 'This is this' or 'That is what This is', give no more thought to the work. That superficial, instant gratification explanation becomes a limitation of the viewer's potential journey for personal meaning through the art. Instead, my preference is that they apply their own mind and memories to the visual content and develop a conclusion or interpretation that is truly unique.

Rarely do I have any pre-conceived idea or vision as to what I will create. The piece simply reveals itself as I work.

While I often remember what I was thinking, feeling and listening to (music is a major inspiration for my art) at the time I was working on a piece, quite often the end result is just as ambiguous in its meaning to me as it is to the viewer.

I am a self-taught multi-media painter from Denver, CO. I have always an artistic inclination, but really "grew into my own" at the tender age of 16 in 2007, developing a love for surrealistic, humanoid-figures as well as a fondness for utilizing mixed media elements in my paintings. For the past decade, I have been consistently producing work that has been in numerous galleries throughout Colorado.


In addition to traditional painting, I have been commissioned to create album art and tour posters for both local and national bands and have dabbled in tattoo design. I have worked with local community outreach programs in creating public art, partaken in multiple art festivals, and performed live painting at concerts for touring bands. My work has been published in local magazines and I was recently featured in Denver Westword’s “15 women street artists you need to know in Denver”.


I am currently a full-time student pursuing a degree in Art Therapy, and when school isn't in session I'm "hustling" in an attempt to make an income out of my artwork.
