Artist - Illustrator - Designer
The art of making runs deep in my family. From a young age, I was encouraged to be myself, and to make all of the art I could possibly make, so that’s exactly what I did. Drawing, painting, collage, sculpture; the variety of media available to create things is what had me continuously coming back for more.
My love for art led me to pursue it further, and in 2015 I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Michigan State University, along with a Bachelor of Arts in the Arts & Humanities. A few years later I started classes at Lansing Community College, and in 2019 I completed a certificate in Graphic Design.
Art will always have a place in my life, whether it's creating personal or professional work. I continue to explore new avenues for my creativity and connecting with my local community of artists. In 2020, a friend and I created a virtual art show in an effort to create an opportunity for artists during the height of the pandemic. Shortly after, I began an internship at the Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center. Later I would join the team, and I continue to work as the Gallery Coordinator to this day.
