Who I am

I am a Pacific Northwest Native who has been integrated into the arts community for over 7 years. I graduated from Marylhurst University with my Bachelor of Fine Arts and a concentration in Photography. While there, I was able to work in gallery spaces and curation. Continuing my education I received my Masters of Arts in Teaching with endorsements in Fine Arts and English. More recently, as I have been teaching, I specialized in Communication Technologies (Graphic Design) and grew a blogging brand.

When I am not creating I am:

Traveling the world. I try to leave the country once a year.

Spending time with my pets and my partner. We have two Borzoi, one Bengal, and one Sphynx.

Hiking and being in nature.

Obsessing over Game of Thrones or Stranger Things
