Artist. Creator. Visionary.

Since arriving on the professional scene in August 2021, I've worked hard to become part of the active Silicon Valley art community. I gather much of my inspiration from personal experiences and nature. Even though I create primarily for myself, collectors have found my work impactful. Please reach out if you want to talk about my process, see my work in person, or connect.

I started painting flowers to connect with Phyllis Semple, who loved flowers and suddenly passed away. Phyllis took away my self-doubt and showered me with encouragement. While living with her and her husband, Ted, I learned about Georgia O'Keeffe, who inspired me. I love that O'Keeffe was an independent woman who did not let the ideas of others squash her unique ones and that she was able to be successful despite traditional mindsets. My subject matter is the same as O'Keeffe's, but my approach differs, and my work reflects an emotion or story and is much more detailed.
