The Art stuff:
Senior thesis artists statemet:
My work is… A mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in my nightmares.
I create dynamic and odd compositions from the fears and dramas of my subconscious. My goal is to blend the real with the imagined giving the viewer and myself a new perspective. These works are very personal but speak of things that are common among humanity. The use of paper, board, watercolor, and ink create a very tactile environment, which one can easily interact with. The use of moving parts is also meant to encourage interaction and add to my narrative. My work is a dark, romantic and playful alternate reality, which opens my mind through its creation.

The Personal Stuff:
I grew up in Montclair New Jersey. I am the daughter of a teacher/musician(mom) and an engineer/environmental enthusiast(dad). I love history as much as art because of how they affect people, and show the emotions and trends of humanity.
