BIO

Calling the state of Arizona home, I am native to the Southwest, born and raised. Emphasizing in Two-Dimensional Art, I graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree, and a minor in Classics. As an artist of multiple mediums, I balance the nurturing of my visual art practice, continuing my passion for music, and further discovering within the newest medium of movement; all in coalition of developing my artistic career. While my creativity is found in the breadth of my current practices, moreover, I am interested in their overlap and divergence, stillness and vibration, reverb and quietness.

Working and residing now in New York City, my next ventures include advancing my practice as a professional dancer, discovering new relationships and metaphors between the range of artistic mediums under the ‘collection’ approach , and delve into the artistic community of the city.
