About the Artist

My collages are often influenced by my personal outlook and true life experiences. I share a fraction of my own little world, by promoting strength, knowledge, and self awareness to overcome social flux and challenges; learning from them through the art of mixed media. Borrowing allusions to the 90’s, street art, Feminism, and the Seattle Grunge Scene; my obsession grew to facilitate art freedom, with no creative limits nor uppity standards, and carrying little to no predetermined expectations for each piece to serve its inspirational purpose.

About the Artist

My collages are often influenced by my personal outlook and true life experiences. I share a fraction of my own little world, by promoting strength, knowledge, and self awareness to overcome social flux and challenges; learning from them through the art of mixed media. Borrowing allusions to the 90’s, street art, Feminism, and the Seattle Grunge Scene; my obsession grew to facilitate art freedom, with no creative limits nor uppity standards, and carrying little to no predetermined expectations for each piece to serve its inspirational purpose. Art comes in many forms and at any age, I chose collaging when I was barely entering grade school. Born in New Jersey, the youngest of three children, I was introduced to the collage method by my mother and a family friend named Judy Lewis. Lewis taught art out of her private basement studio and also instructed at the local high school. I took everything she taught me straight to heart, and most of what I learned from Lewis, I still bare in mind while creating my work today. I recall a vivid memory of a time I used too much paint; setting my “dripping” faux pas to dry, I revel in what Lewis called “A Beautiful Mistake”. An error that I embraced, became enamored with, and pragmatically infuse in most of my art work. Flowing from one art demographic to another, I relocated from Washington D.C, where I attended The George Washington University to Austin, Texas, seeking more positive exposure; soaking in a new life and totally different environment. I like to express my playful side, never shunning the Basquiant beneath, a genius, and child; born from struggle, smiling. Creative minds think alike. The Natural Born Artists: RAW Art Organization has been the foundation for many artisans, including myself. RAW DC set the ball rolling in terms of my art career and I am now a proud member of RAW Austin. Recent engagements include, co-founding a Pop-Up Gallery (By, The People) in New York City, and Asbury Park, NJ. By, The People’s purpose is to be a volunteer-based pop up gallery, occuring every 2 months, for the purpose of propelling hobbies into potential realities for people our age (both on the vendor and client sides). Culled from the social consciousness and current events of today, each of my pieces feature a different cultural comment viewed through the lense of my experiences. I like to consider my work as an ode to ‘Femme Fatales’. The simple overlapping of many small pieces, arranged in just the right way speaks volumes, touching on issues implicitly without being overbearing or preachy. My work tends to stand as a viewers’ test, challenging what one sees versus what they feel in relation to the contemporary pits, progress and powers effecting as all.
