"It took me my entire life." - Picasso.

I could say that I have only been an "artist" for a short period of time, but that would not be true. One does not simply become an artist; it is something that you are, a way of seeing the world around you. There have been bumps and long dry spells along the way, but when it comes to creation, that doesn’t matter. I am here now. I create layered pieces and spill my deepest thoughts and insecurities into them. What started as heavy, glue-soaked journal pages has evolved into something else.

And it took me my entire life to get here.

I have had the honor to show my creations in Fashion Boutiques, Art Stores, Coffee Shops, Places of Worship, Offices, and Homes across the United States.
