I’m originally from Los Angeles, and so was lucky enough to visit museums often and grow a strong love and appreciation of art from a young age. More recently, I’ve been able to hone my skills, try out new techniques, and create art on a regular basis, both with my personal art business and with my work at Clackeys in downtown Davis–an artisan keycap production company. I primarily work with acrylic paint, and love to incorporate nature themes into my pieces as a nod to my bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and Management. Some of my recent paintings include a leaf from a ginkgo tree–my favorite tree species–and a weeping willow tree across the back of a denim jacket.
I also enjoy the freedom of abstract art, where I can utilize various techniques and color tones to create interesting textures. I would describe my style as joyful, whimsical, and inspired by nature. For instance, I love incorporating gold sparkles and accents into my pieces, as seen with some of my abstract work or alongside paintings of flowers. I feel it gives it the extra spark of joy that is so often seen with Disney animation, which is another major inspiration of mine. I hope to create art that can make people smile, whether it be a flower that reminds them of their mom, a denim jacket covered in their favorite fruit, or an abstract painting with their favorite colors. If I can bring a bit of happiness into a person’s day with a piece I’ve made, I’ve done my job right.
I’ve recently been vending at events around Davis such as at the first annual Davis Community Holiday Market hosted by The Growing Groves and Sudwerk Brewing Co., the 2nd Friday Art About Night Market at The Pence Gallery, and Rocknasium’s Member Appreciation Party. I hope to continue vending at events such as these throughout the year.
