Artist Bio
(b. 1987, Allentown, Pennsylvania) I am an Artist based in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. I received my BFA from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 2010 and I am a former Resident Artist at Kutztown University (Kutztown, PA), The Cigar Factory (Allentown, PA), and The Banana Factory (Bethlehem, PA). Most recently, I joined my new business partner to establish Midnight Gallery in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania in the summer of 2022.

My work can be described as ethereal. It is inspired by nature, skyscapes, landscapes, microscopic images, and the cosmos. Each painting represents familiar elements within an abstract world. The surface of the work has a tangible texture built with paint, various gel mediums, sand, and/or gold leaf. Modeling layers, dimensions, and illusions of space in the painting, the finished pieces suggest parallel, yet distant, worlds. Evoking a dream-like quality, there is a mood of calmness in each piece.

I also work with collage, mixed media, and drawing. I began mural work and painting/decorating home interiors in 2021. In my free time I love gardening, tending to my plethora of house plants, hiking, exploring nature, roller skating, baking, and spending time with family, friends, and my husband and our dog, River. And let's not forget eating; I love food.
