Bio

Currently i am in the process of finishing my degree of bachelors of fine arts with the Cleveland Institute of art. I am experienced with many sculptural procedures such as: life casting, alginate, silicone, latex, plaster bandage and plaster. I also have knowledge for mold making for the process of making multiples as well as for casting glass. My experience for multi media started back in high school with my introduction to ceramic and special effects. To further my interests i continued my education with the Cleveland institute of art where i was able to learn an assortment of different applied artistic process such as: Photo shop, Painting, Wood working, Photography, Metals and Drawing. My strongest focus was applied to glass blowing, glass casting, ceramics and jewelry and metals.

Artist statement

I like to make art that takes to viewer into a transcendental universe of love, despair and fantasy. I enjoy the stories of folklore, fairy tales and those of religious belief and try to convey my own understanding of them though my interpretation.
