I am a 22-year-old painter from White Plains, NY and am currently pursuing a dual major in Art and Psychology at Ithaca College.
While my artwork ranges from charcoal drawings to pastel drawings, my primary medium is oil painting. My art is about understanding myself as well as others while connecting the role of hurt in a beautiful life. My paintings serve as a vehicle for social change by expressing emotion and capturing the beauty of the human experience.
I want to rewrite the backstory of the struggle in life’s hardships instead of the hardships writing the backstory, accomplishing this through the development of pieces that involve people reflecting on emotions and coping with troubles. I aim to show beauty without omitting the harsh.
Creating art has influenced my life by giving me a sense of who I am and who I am becoming. I dream of creating spaces and experiences that will serve as both a liberation and outlets for expression.
