I grew up here in Traverse City, MI and have been involved in the arts since High School. I began my journey studying art here at NMC before transferring to Michigan State University where I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Apparel and Textile Design. I also focused on Costume and Make up where I created looks for the Theater Dept, and took classes in Drawing, Painting, and Graphic Design. I was an active member in the Student Apparel Design Association as well.
Since then I had moved out to San Francisco, CA where I was able to be involved in Fashion Shows and Photo Shoots. I have since recently moved back and have focused on Illustration, Painting, Fashion and Photography. I love creating unique mixed media art as well as painting and photographing landscapes in Traverse City MI. I also have a love of fashion, and create unique apparel pieces as well which you'll also see on my page. I look forward to being back in my hometown here in Traverse City, and being involved in the Art Community!
