I’m a Portland-based artist who grew up in the Midwest. My BFA is in Graphic Design, but you will most likely find me off the computer, drawing and painting, mixing as many different shades of pink that I can find. I work on paper, wood and fabric. In my spare time, I work as a barista.
In school I trailed off the main road of Graphic Design whenever possible, scanning in paint, fabric, and ripped up pages from books.
Using line, color, & collage to depict my latest experience became my method. A trip to New York City for the first time, a new album by my favorite band, discovering a new poetry book; these are the experiences that could make my work feel like it was flowing out me effortlessly. It was an inward exploration as a new artist.
