I am a freelance artist from Los Gatos, California. I finished my first painting in 2005 at the age of 9 and have been creating ever since.
Art is my meditation. In times of overwhelming stress, there are two things that refocus my mind: art and traveling. When I pick up my paintbrush, nothing can hurt me and nothing can distract me. Art lifts me into my own bubble filled with my own accepting thoughts. I am completely focused and centered. My decision to pursue a career in the arts sparked after my travels to the Southern Hemisphere last year. Traveling exposed me to new cultures. It pushed me beyond my comfort zone, proven my ability to persevere, and gave me lifelong friendships. Traveling improved my self-confidence and showed me that life is to short to not follow my passion for art.
I believe that seeking a career in what I love will lead to a full life despite the challenges that may come. I am a freelance artist and envision myself making this a full-time career where I create original pieces inspired from my travels as well as produce meaningful artwork for my clients. Let’s see where this takes me!
Stay curious. Discover. Create.

Lastly, I’d like to thank Mona Subucco and Gabe Landaverde for their support and Thad Smith for teaching me how to art.
