Hello! I am a printmaker, painter, and climber who loves dinner parties and dancing. I received my BFA from the University of Oklahoma and am currently practicing in OKC. My work is process intensive and through printmaking and painting I get to let go of complete control, find relief in being consumed by the moment, and visually solve my thoughts. Oh what the process of creating can reveal!

ARTIST STATEMENT

There is freedom in letting go of control. My work, in a literal sense, is my inner thoughts manifesting visually. While working with a surface and letting intuition guide my mark making, I play with process and abstraction while letting my brain subconsciously deal with moments, memories, and thoughts. I hope to give a glimpse of what it may be like to walk down a tiny stream, gather around a campfire at the end of the day, or stand in the midst of waves crashing during the setting of the sun. To express wanting to cry, dance, laugh, and sleep all at the same time through layers and colors and marks. My work becomes more than just a visual experience; it begins to beg an emotional response.
