I’m a multi-disciplinary artist who infuses her love for both watercolor textures and graphic design principles with messages about life. What I create is deeply inspired by personal experiences and made with the hope of bringing connection, joy, and encouragement to people of all ages. I am constantly energized by nature, animals, words, and the human spirit. (I once spent a summer living with shepherds on a sheep farm in New Zealand after reading The Alchemist.) I believe in our youth, the power of storytelling, eco-honoring processes, and dark chocolate.
As a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University’s Teachers College, I began my art career in art education in New York City. This included writing several interdisciplinary art curriculums for the New-York Historical Society and teaching children's book illustration, graphic design, digital media, watercolor, and fashion to hundreds of awesome teen artists at LaGuardia Arts High School--NYC's acclaimed ”Fame” school.
Now, based out of Los Angeles, California, I'm taking a pause from the classroom to focus on my own creative work. Besides making sense of my life through art, you can find me hosting gluten-free dinner parties, at a comedy club, or meditating and playing barefoot on the beach. With whatever spare time I have, I give to my beloved non-profits.
Ultimately! All I want is to cultivate connection ...
