I make the art I want to see in the world.
As a queer, mixed, 1st generation American woman, I make art to tell stories…because every time we contribute our story, we create a more expansive, inclusive portrait of humanity.
I feel drawn in by the depth of encaustic pieces, and the layers of history—hidden and revealed—that you can sense, if not see. I love layered stories that breathe in and out of space and time, stories that span generations and continents. I find beauty in the rusty, weathered and worn. I love the stories that scars hold ~ and feel compelled to take those stories of survival, and turn them into something beautiful to behold.
