I have been expressing myself through art for as long as I can remember–since before I had a developed verbal vocabulary!
I grew up in Atlanta, GA and studied art at Red Wall Art Studio (now Asa’s Alley) with Charlene Shikany and at Woodward Academy. I spent a formative semester as a junior in high school at The Oxbow School in Napa, CA. Since then, I have lived briefly in Great Barrington, MA; Los Angeles, CA; Salt Lake City, UT; and Sedona, AZ. Recently, I moved to Flagstaff, AZ.
Making art grounds me. I cannot remember a time when art-making did not engage me, soothe me, and bring me joy.
In addition to making and looking at art, I love to travel, cook, read fantasy and science fiction novels, watch movies, and spend time in nature. I am passionate about environmental protection and sustainability and about social justice. Above all, I love to learn!
The story of the 🔺— The red triangle is something I started doodling in middle school — red is my favorite color, and I remembered many occasions in preschool in which I drew triangles over and over with a scarlet Crayola crayon (my forever favorite crayon). I was obsessed with getting it perfect; I wanted to draw a perfect equilateral triangle. So, once I remembered that determined 5-yr-old’s mission, I began to draw the red triangle at the bottom of any piece of paper, even exam pages, on which I had drawn or doodled—thus sealing the fate of the red triangle as my permanent artistic signature.
