BIO

I received a BFA in Fine Art with a minor in Art History at

Pennsylvania College of Art and Design. I worked as a curatorial board

member for CORE Gallery, the student-managed exhibition space. I

take an active role in shaping and implementing cultural

programming for the student body and college campus. Within this

capacity, I also served as the Treasurer. I enjoy painting with oil,

exploring the human figure, and portraiture. Recently, my work is

installation-based and involves furniture elements and vintage

patterns. Working with materials of all kinds, textiles are important

to my oeuvre. I often use fabric and thread to intertwine my family

traditions to pay homage to those who helped shape my practice and

express my own personal artistic journey.
