Artist Bio: The mental inspiration for my body of work is Folklore; stories humans have created and collected to explain the unknown. Tales about animals and their wit especially peek my interest. Religion is also another way humans have used to explain what they don’t understand.

The visual inspiration my work pulls from include Mexican Folk, Mesoamerican, Pacific Northwest Native American, and Japanese art. These are then filtered through the eyes of an anime and comic book lover.

The merger is a primary result of being raised in the Northwest. Seattle is a perfect example of the melding of all these influences and is true representation of my pursuit of understanding the unknown.


(A little side note: the artist is also celebrating her belated birthday and invites all fellow caners and summer birthday friends to come out and play!)
