Through my practice, I explore the transcendence between dreams and waking-life in the context of magic and myth. My work often depicts utopian atmospheres filled with modern day nymphs, deities, holy beings, strange figures and creatures who reveal the the interconnectivity of animals, people and nature. I aim to create a vision of something innocent, wild, and alive. My figures are playful and contain the elements of the universe within their own structure. My work allows me to be free, to be messy and chaotic in areas, to be sharp and clean in other areas. It helps me embrace the dualities of existence.
I briefly studied painting and drawing at California College of the Arts in San Francisco but dropped out in 2014 to pursue a career in art in Los Angeles.
I've been artist in residence in various programs such as Momazozo in New Mexico and Rhubarb House in Switzerland both in 2016.
I currently live and work in Los Angeles, California with my husband and daughter.
