Recently, I’ve been exploring media, colors and composition in an actively intuitive and therapeutic way. This break from extensive pre-planning with my work has helped me with processing the pandemic we find ourselves in, as well as with many pent-up frustrations or worries as I navigate my way through post-secondary life, allowing myself to work and re-work a peice as many times as I need to to get my intentions across. Working this way is also allowing me to continuously develop my style, well beyond what I thought it was as I was exiting my art degree.


Since I’m currently doing a lot of experimentation with my art practice, I don’t yet identify with any one style or medium. That being said, I find myself drawn to bold and bright colors and textures, and this can be seen in varying ways throughout my entire portfolio.
