My interest in creating art began at a very young age. Whether I was making paper dolls with colorful costumes or "doodling" in school notebooks, I was always creating characters and stories. I draw inspiration from literature and film, and issues that matter to me. My extensive education at the Art Institute of Philadelphia and Moore College of Art and Design has provided me with the tools I need to bring my ideas to life. In addition to my art education, I am also a certified Montessori teacher for pre-kindergarten children. I aspire to use my art to create lessons and quality stories geared toward young people.
