For the first 18 years of my life, I lived in Hainesville, Illinois (US). Currently, I am residing in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. Art has had a huge part in my life since I was very little. It took me until three years of being in college to realize that I wanted to major in something I actually enjoyed, thus I decided to major in Studio Art with a concentration in painting and drawing at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. I also picked up a minor in Psychology because i have a really big interest in how and why the mind works the way it does. I also really enjoy looking into the psychology behind my work, as i use art for therapeutic purposes as well. On a more personal level, I am a HUGE animal lover. I have a golden retriever named Maggie (image attached below, she is the sweetest doggo), a cat named Heda (she is a very independent kitty), and two goldfish named Reggie and Felix. Currently, I am really enjoying using my own photography in digital collage work, and then painting those collage's with oil paint. We shall see where this interest takes me, Stay tuned!
