Artist bio

In the heart of a family of talented artists, my journey as an artist began with the guiding hand of my grandmother, who nurtured my love for painting at an early age. As a preteen, my mother's watchful eye honed my drawing skills, shaping my artistic foundation.

Driven by a deep-seated passion for art, I pursued a degree in anthropology, expanding my horizons while continuing to explore the boundless realm of artistic expression. During my college years, I embraced various mediums and methods, unlocking new avenues for creative exploration.

The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History provided a pivotal internship experience, igniting my passion for exploring the intersection of art and culture. Post-graduation, I immersed myself in an artistic multimedia ethnography project for the UCSC Anthropology department, while simultaneously managing production for a bridal jewelry company. It was during this time that my artistic journey took an unexpected turn.

Inspired by my lifelong love for Renaissance Faires, I began crafting intricate leather masks, drawing upon my artistic background and my deep connection to the magical world of fairies. The overwhelming response to my masks at Renaissance Faires across the country solidified my decision to dedicate my time and resources to this unique art form.

For the past ten years, I have dedicated myself to refining my craft and pushing the boundaries of leather mask-making. Each mask tells a story, imbued with a sense of enchantment and wonder. I have experimented with new techniques, styles, and materials, constantly evolving and adapting my creative process.

Relocating to Wisconsin in 2022, I joined the vibrant House of Rad art community in Milwaukee, where I now have one of my art workshops. This move reignited my passion for traditional visual art, leading to the creation of a captivating series of oil portrait paintings featuring my masks.

My artistic journey has been a blend of exploration, experimentation, and deep-rooted passion. It is a testament to the power of art to transcend boundaries, inspire the imagination, and bring joy to others.
