Work

Her favorite piece is one she just completed last March for "The Mutant Piñata Show" at the Frontal Lobe Gallery on Grand Street in Phoenix. It's a 5 and a half foot long centipede piñata title "Bajumba". He's currently on display at Madison #1 Middle School in the library.

Right now she is painting circle paintings her my Etsy Store "Painting in Circles", and for a store in Philadelphia called S.O.T.A. Spirit of the Artist located on Pine Street. She is also working on some freelance illustration work, laying out and designing a graphic novel, and beginning the design stage for some giant snail sculptures for the Hanging Gardens and Woven Fences Festival next October. She is new to the Phoenix area, and she has been amazed by the wonderful art community there.

Message from the Artist

"Being a creative person is tough in this world today, but there's more to life than the pursuit of rent money.  Creating art may not make you wealthy but it really can make you happy.  I like to paint. It focuses my mind and makes my soul sing."

Her favorite quote:

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
