About

After graduating from San Francisco State University with a B.A. in Studio Arts, dual emphasis in ceramics and textiles in 2011, I moved to Albuquerque, NM. Here I am slowly but surely building a studio space in my lovely new home.

At the moment I am working in a variety of mediums, all exploring the idea of neo-folk.

I grew up in a suburb just minutes north of San Francisco in a quaint little track house turned cottage with my incredible single mother and hilarious younger brother. There we had a beautiful English country garden, an ever-evolving vegetable plot, several prosperous fruit trees, and a virtual Noah's Ark of pets.

There we had a beautiful English country garden, an ever-evolving vegetable plot, several prosperous fruit trees, and a virtual Noah's Ark of pets. I spent many of my afternoons on a swing built by my grandfather, in the tree-house above, and watching my lil' bro driving toy trucks through the formidable dunes of his sandbox. There was a strong pulse of creativity that ran through our house where I practice crocheting, sewing, origami, and baking, all of which I continue to do today.

When not creating or working to pay the bills, I love trying out new flavors at the local paletarias.
