I grew up bouncing back and forth between Seattle and Tacoma Washington. Losing myself in the creation of objects has always been an exploratory process in times of growth and transition. Drawing, painting and photography were vital outlets to explore the social world around me in my formative years. I graduated from Tacoma School of the Arts in 2008 and grounded myself in Seattle until 2016. I acquired an Associates Degree at Seattle Central Community College in 2011 and over a five year break from academic institutions I took fine metals classes at Pratt Fine Arts and wheel-throwing classes at Seward Park Clay Studio. Over my undergraduate break I supported myself in the service industry and formed strong bonds with artists working in the Seattle area. I have participated in selling my ceramic jewelry at local pop- up shops and The Fremont Sunday Market in Seattle.
In the Fall of 2018 I graduated from The Evergreen State College with a Bachelor of Arts emphasizing in Art Theory through ceramic and metal materials. On the endeavor of acquiring my undergraduate degree at TESC I have reclaimed my passion for working with material with a new perspective on the conceptual and social practices in craft art. I plan to immerse myself in the world of ceramics, evolve as a working artist and start building an artistically driven community.
