She studied graphic design at Seattle Central and painting at Gage Academy and the University of Washington, where she graduated cum laude in 2009.

Her current work focuses on acrylic paintings and linocut prints to render visual metaphors of her spiritual experiences. She is inspired by the abstracted compositions and luminous colors of stained glass windows. “It is with this iconography that I am learning to communicate the beautiful poetry I find in life.”
