I am an artist originally from Oklahoma, USA and I was a professional ballet dancer. Upon retirement, I decided to follow my love of art and earn my BFA in studio art. I am now living and working in the Pacific Northwest, and continue to draw inspiration from the unique qualities in people around me. I have been influenced by seeing how societal expectations and gender roles are implemented in society and how harmful these can be. My work strives to express the freedom and fluidity of the world and people around us.
