She obtained her Bachelors of Fine Arts with an emphasis on Drawing and Painting at California State University Long Beach. She relocated to Portland, Oregon in 2018. Her artistic practice remains close to her roots with South American fauna and landscape as recurring themes. She works in various media, including drawing, painting, and straw marquetry. She’s a new member of IDEAL PDX, currently collaborating in their mural series around town.
A Better World is Possible is a series of visual compositions in a mix of old and new materials and techniques where I explore themes of cultural belonging, womanhood, and citizenship in the post covid 19 world.
