About the Art
I have gravitated towards the process of photography and printmaking, including cyanotypes, in expressing myself and making my work. It has unlocked a new sphere of creativity after exploring acrylic abstracts and drawing.

She specializes in drawing, abstract acrylics, photography, and printmaking and her work has been showcased in several galleries online and in person across the country including the U.S. Botanic Garden and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. From 2018-2021, she produced the podcast “In Which I Talk To Artists,” interviewing artists about their work and inspiration.
“In each work, I am most inspired by the creation and preservation of beauty, creating abstracts, self-empowerment, using myself as a muse, and communicating non-verbal messages of humanity, gender, and sensuality.”
