I am a Photographer.
I am an Artist.
I am also a writer, a creator, a designer, a reader, an animal lover, and a TV show and movie buff. Though some of the most important things to recognize about me are that I am a passionate, poetic, and hardworking person.
I have been curious about life since my first words as a child. Since those first words I have grown into a young woman who has seen and experienced the greater shares of pain and love in what life has to offer. My sense of life values are placed into my work, as are my emotional responses to life’s experience.
I am inspired by all that has happened in my life; tragedy, love, loss, and other misfortunes. These memories have presented themselves in many different occurrences and are what have forever shaped my life views. I have a greater appreciation for life, a better understanding for what one must go through to grasp the importance of life’s struggle, and I have an acceptance that there is a certain need and beauty in the pain that we all go through. I am inspired by many things: life, books, poetry, memory, psychology, philosophy, meta works, morality, melancholy, the list could go on. My love in my life belongs to my boyfriend, family, friends, and my pets.
I graduated from Milwaukee Institute of Art & Designin 2013 with BFAs in Photography and Communication Design. I have a strong focus in Artist’s Books and poetry. I love working with things hands on and I recently started working with Encaustic Painting as well.
