About

 

Bio

Calling the state of Arizona home, I am a desert dweller who recently moved New York City. As an artist of multiple mediums, I balance the nurturing my visual art practice, continuing my passion for music, and further discovering the newest medium of movement, all in a coalition of developing my artistic career. While my creativity is found in the breadth of my current practices, moreover, I bring seminal ingenuity to the variety of fields in which I play in. With an unwavering character, ambitious professional aspirations, and a driven work ethic, I utilize my imagination and rigor in all my facets. My next ventures include directing my first choreographed production, discovering new relationships between the range of artistic mediums, pursuance of my master's degree, and launching my own creative company.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I seek to kindle the notion of conceptual visual poetry. Methodical and laced with romanticism, the work transcends a range of artistic practices through the mediums of visual art, movement, and sound. Unveiling a synergy and fostering of cross mediums, my artistic practice explores the kinship and strength of interdisciplinary study. The symbiosis of identifying with the LGBTQ community and an established belief system, anamnesis and the retention of memory, to the body's response to music, movement, and audiovisuals, are recent studies.
