(b. Lawrence, Kansas 1997)
The process takes precedence over the outcome. The materials take over the sense of control through applying paint with a palette knife and working wet into wet. Painting is an instinctual and cathartic experience. My artwork is primarily figurative, focusing on human connection and psychology. I am a multimedia artist - exploring video, installation, fused glass, printmaking, and more but always come back to painting.
I received my BFA in painting and minor in psychology from Oregon State University in 2021 with plans to pursue further education in art therapy.
