"The potential for Post-traumatic Growth is inevitable through the transmutation of pain, using art as a catalyst.”
“Each piece conveys the many diverse and often contradictory feelings that I had while serving in the Army and in retirement.”
“My work seeks to capture the psycho-intellectual, emotional, and social perspectives of traumatic healing.”

From as early as she can recall, creativity was interwoven into her life’s journey. Every form of textile artistry piques her interest to the point of formal training and execution.

“My pieces were inspired by my two cherished Mentors and Teachers, Alaura Ennis and Andrew Kich, III, They have both sparked a fire underneath me that I never knew I had. They both gave me permission to fail and now I am hooked.”
