Throughout my entire life, I have been deeply immersed in the world of art, and I’ve always known it was my calling to bring art into the lives of everyone around me.

I was born and raised in Carlsbad where my passion for art was fostered. My educational journey brought me to places like New York City, where I laid the foundation for my artistic pursuits at Pratt Institute. Then, I transferred to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, IL, where I worked to earn my Bachelor’s degree and teaching credential simultaneously.

Alongside my academic endeavors, I have also exhibited my own artwork in Encinitas, CA, and Chicago. I maintain my own artist practice in various media such as ceramics, fiber arts, painting, printmaking, and mixed media.

The opportunity to share my unwavering passion for creativity with eager minds brings me great joy. I am so grateful to be a part of an institution that values the importance of artistic expression and fosters an environment where students can explore their own artistic journeys!
