In May 2016, I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University's School of the Arts with a BFA in Interior Design, and I couldn't be more excited to jump in and see what the world has to offer. Since graduating, I took a leap and moved to Washington, D.C. to work at what Washingtonian calls one of the best Design firms in Washington, D.C., where I had the opportunity to work on some of my dream projects. I've also recently discovered that I can never truly leave Richmond and have since found my way back home, where I am now working for an incredibly powerful and emerging Design/Architecture firm.

When I started at VCU, I was convinced I would be a graphic designer and work on advertising and become a famous designer, but of course, life never works out like planned. I landed myself in the Interior Design program, and I could not imagine a more perfect place for me.

I have been developing my fine art portfolio since around 2011. I did a lot of experimenting with different media for the first year or so in high school: encaustic drawings, ink, paint, spray paint and stencil art, wood burning... You name it. Stencil art really spoke to me, and I instantly fell in love with the idea of controlled chaos and being able to completely manipulate the application of spray paint to make anything I wanted. 

Outside of design, my other true loves are Britney Spears, corgis, murals and octopuses. Not necessarily in that order.
