ABOUT THE ARTIST
I began drawing & painting when I was a child, and remained dedicated in my pursuit of the arts throughout high school, in spite of being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in my hands at the age of 15. I refused to let my disease stop me from being able to create, and I continued to diligently learn and grow my practice.
I received my Master's degree in Art History & Visual Culture in 2017, have interned at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, and have exhibited at the TAG Gallery in St. Catharines, Ontario, and the ArtExpo in New York.
I want painting to become a full-time practice, and so this website was born. I want to share my work with as many people as I can, especially those that suffer with diseases that result in physical limitations. Having such a tempermental, and at times crippling disease in my hands, has called for patience and ingenuity over the years. I have learned that rather than give up, I've simply had to pivot. I've chosen abstract because of its fluidity, and I hope that my paintings can evoke feelings of freedom, strength, and persistence: and if you think they're beautiful, well, that's just an added bonus!
