My Medium

I am a recent high school graduate living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. In fall of 2020 I will begin my undergraduate degree in Studio Art at the Oregon State University Honors College. I plan to complete a minor in Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies as well. I spend a great deal of my free time working on my art or binge-watching shows on Netflix. I am super passionate about global issues such as human rights and climate change.

My Medium

While I like to play around with a wide range of mediums from ceramic to charcoal, my primary medium is oil paint. I have been painting with oil for about two years now and have found it to be a fairly forgiving substance, allowing for smooth, fine details. As a self-proclaimed perfectionist, I love the slow-drying nature of oil paint as it provides artists a lengthy window of time in which to refine their paintings.

My Inspiration

Almost all of my work is inspired by personal experiences or opinions of mine. Don't get me wrong, sometimes I enjoy creating pieces just because I think they will look good. However, I am a firm believer in the distinction between art and decoration; I think that true art should be able to tell a story.
