Her artwork focuses on subjects like religious concepts, digital designs, symbolism, and portraiture.

After collage, her plans are to focus on perfecting her personal work as well as take commissions.
My work consists of visual story telling through drawings, paintings, mixed media, digital media, and assemblages. Sometimes I’ll create stories from my own past, but typically I like to uplift others and their stories when I create. I use drawn objects and symbols to help tell these stories, as well as the usage of color to reflect the mood I feel the scene should portray to better suit the individual. I find joy in making others feel like they are both worthy and beautiful enough to become a work of art. It’s kind of an illusion though because they were born masterpieces regardless of work being made in their image or to their likeness.
My personal philosophy to creating artwork is that if the work I am making doesn’t line up with my beliefs, morals, or doesn’t possess a deeper meaning or symbolic essence to it, I shouldn’t be creating it. I enjoy the work that I’ve put thought and effort into. Work that not only affects my emotions but also could have a connection with others.
