artist in her studio


I'm constantly creating in my studio and finding moments of inspiration.  My mixed media process involves drawing, screen printing, sewing (by hand), and painting.  I begin my pieces on muslin, and build up with layers of sewing and painting.

With my work, I am interested in creating both new worlds and using imagery to capture ideas or moments from this world.

I have a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University (2012), during  which I spent a semester abroad at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey (2011).

I live and work in Los Angeles, CA.
