I am a self-taught artist based in Portland, Maine. In December of 2020 I picked up a paintbrush for the first time since 6th grade, and now I find myself unable to put the brush down. I work with acrylic paint on canvas and my paintings focus on free will and pure expression, which I channel through my use of color and mark-making.

Growing up as a person of color in a rural town in Vermont, I actively suppressed my individuality. I took away much of my childhood freedom in an attempt to blend in. I am here to reclaim that freedom through my work.
