About

To Find My Way

The artwork my shop contains says a lot about me. I have a variety of styles in my art & my life. Changing mediums & styles helps me personally keep things new and allows my creative spirit to remain diverse.

Art has always been a lifelong passion, and, in many ways, is a diary of my life. As a teenager, my art was strictly mixed medium, larger works. I learned different forms of printmaking in college and it was then I started making art to sell. I shifted focus on screen printing, loving how I could spread more work through editions of pieces, and the sense of accomplishment it gave me to have multiple copies. As I left school, I was determined to keep the trade with me and built a studio in my first apartment. To continue to enhance what print making I knew, I began to letterpress. Finally, as a way to grow, I taught myself calligraphy.

I am at a place now where I truly meander between the different mediums I love - making very personal journals, painting larger mixed mediums canvases, creating cards that people can interact with. I hope that this desire to wander through mediums continues to fuel my life & art in the years to come, and will lead me to the place I am meant to be as an artist.
