Hello! I am a printmaker, painter, and climber who loves dinner parties and dancing. I received my BFA in printmaking from the University of Oklahoma in 2017 and co-founded Art Group OKC. I currently reside in OKC where I am a practicing professional artist. My work is process intensive. Through printmaking and painting I give in to intuition and the natural effects of chemistry on paper. I find relief in being consumed by the moment, and visually solving my questions. My work reflects internal thoughts and processes, as well as fun and beauty that I find throughout the world. 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 a visual manifestation of my inner thoughts. While playing with the merging of mediums, a brush, a screen, a needle, I let 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. I want to express wanting to cry, laugh, dance, 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 evoke an emotional response.
