I’m a self-taught artist from Pittsburgh, PA where I grew up in a big family with a lot of animals and was unschooled for most of my K-12 education. I loved to read (still do) and escaped into books to avoid hard things, riding the 67F bus down to the Carnegie Library and carrying home as many books as I could many days a week. I’ve also lived in Bellingham, WA, Saint Louis, MO & Birmingham, AL.

I studied Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies and Creative Writing at Washington University in St Louis. I really want to live near Santa Fe someday, the southwestern landscape inspires me and I feel like my favorite version of myself in it. I am a lifelong vegetarian, have lived in more apartments and houses than I can count, was once homeless and have hitchhiked up the California coast.

I currently reside & create in Montgomery, AL. See the resume page for a list of places my work has been shown, featured or published.

I’ve independently published a book of poems, Putting The Ghosts to Rest, which is available online.

One of my on-going projects is Deer Heart Magazine, a digital publication featuring art & artists of many mediums, which I started in September of 2017.
