ABOUT 

I was born and raised in Sandy, Utah. I graduated from Southern Utah University in April of 2017, and received my Bachelor of Science in Art with a Museum Studies and Art History minor.

 

As an artist, I am intrigued by detail. This fascination comes from a combination of my parents' influences. My dad is a science teacher and he always taught me that exploration was a great tool for learning. I especially like to explore the little details I find in nature and the world around me, whether it be in raindrops, the human body, or even chrome. By exploring these details, I discover patterns and gain more knowledge about the object and its fundamental qualities. My mom and grandma, who both studied art in college, taught me to find beauty in these patterns. I am sensitive to detail with the hope that people who see my work will find a new appreciation for details that might be overlooked in their everyday lives, but are truly beautiful.
