She was born and raised upstate in Rochester and has always loved visually creating: from illustrating and sculpting to painting and photography.

This past summer her work was exhibited in Pinyoa, China, at the Pinyoa Art Exhibit.

She and her work are inspirational, complex, often simple, and continues to expand.
