I am a 27 year old female mixed media artist born and raised in Kansas City. I graduated from UMKC with my bachelor’s degree in Art Education. I have worked as an art teacher for charter schools in Kansas City and still continue to do so. I discovered my love for painting as a child and continued to make a career out of my passion for art making. I am inspired by nature and the female form. My work consists of bright and pastel colors in conjunction with thick and texturized brush strokes.
