About Me

I am an artist living in Portland, OR. I studied sculpture in college, but I work mostly on large-scale murals these days, which is a medium I love for telling stories. Murals have a way of captivating people and taking them on a visual journey to find the beauty that exists in various cultures and communities. I feel a responsibility to expose people to histories and present day truths, not to mention that the world could use a little more color. I love every minute of being up on scaffolding with a paintbrush, but when I'm on ground level, my other passion is soccer. I play striker on various women's indoor and outdoor club teams, and have had the opportunity to compete abroad. I truly admire the work of World Pulse and I am happy to be connected to such powerful women across the globe!
