My earliest memories involve drawing, watching my mother create life on paper, imagining fairytales and celestial maidens form out of nothing but pencil lines and curves. As I grew older, I disregarded the fairy tales and stories I had grown up on, trading them for “practical skills and knowledge” as I tried to mold myself into the ideal daughter that my parents wanted me to be.


It was not until Covid hit that I picked up a paintbrush again and felt myself finally whole and capable of breathing again. My inspiration starts with women-- and it first extended to mythology and folklore where I found myself enraptured by stories of love, passion, and adventure. From Romeo and Juliet to Cupid & Psyche, these stories of longing, passion, and pining have always inspired and captured my imagination.

To that end, I work primarily in watercolor– a medium that is decidedly capricious with a mind of its own. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, ranging from Klimt and Mucha to Tran Nguyen, I sought to depict these stories in their full glory, juxtaposing sharply precise linework alongside blooms and washes of watercolor paint while incorporating gold ink and foil to bring their full strength and power to life.
