I'm an artist from Northern Virginia. I create messy and beautiful paintings as a reflection of my life.

I started drawing at an early age...
and shortly after I was wheelchair bound for three years, later on getting diagnosed with a chronic/autoimmune disease.
Without the use of my arms and legs, I had time to watch the world around me.
I now create messy and beautiful paintings...
as a reflection of my life.
These abstract compositions...
let the viewer take a step into my mind and experiences, using my emotions from flashbacks and memories.
Feeling and experiencing the way I do...
with my neurodiverse brain almost 100% reflects on my work.
Being a part of ARTXV...
means a lot. I don’t feel alone, I don’t feel quiet.
I’m surrounded by a bunch of amazing artists, all of them are so talented and I don’t have to be quiet about my art and my disability anymore.
I know I have a voice and my voice will be heard.
