About Me

“I am an aspiring artist pursuing a degree in fashion design and metalworking with a minor in art history at the University of North Texas. My art is influenced by the places I go, the people I meet, and the moments I experience in life. I believe it is an artist’s job to take something ordinary and transform it into something that delights the viewers’ senses. The main purpose of my art is to try to capture a small moment in time. Whether from a flower in bloom or an idea growing into its own, my inspiration can come from anywhere. I try to replicate those ideas in my work because life is fleeting and should be enjoyed to the fullest. My work is meant to preserve this. 

There is little wonder in the world and it is an artist’s duty to add wonder and amazement into people’s life and turn dreams into reality.”
