About

Artist Statement:
I create art as a visual and emotional interpretation of my life. A chronicle of the sights and sounds of everyday: people, places, things and knowledge gained. Life is never limited, neither is my medium.

The works that she creates are a marriage of two disciplines- art & science. During her pre-med studies she discovered a love of chemistry and quickly found ways of using the experiments she was learning in artistic ways. Using methods such as crystallization, oxidation and electrical conductivity she is creating works that are as much her conceptualism as they are forces of nature.
