I have gone to San Francisco Art Institute for a BFA in painting. I moved to Chicago to go to School of the Art Institute of Chicago which was a very rewarding experience. I have showed in galleries in San Francisco and Colorado with my paintings and photos. I now work at a motorcycle dealership selling parts and racing motorcycles. My racing is a big stem of inspiration for me and my art, I enjoy defying gender roles and showing a side that people don't witness often. With my art I aim to show my sport and empower women to defy the norm and do what they love whether its in sports, fashion or just day to day. On the opposite side enjoy showcasing the soft sides of the male figure, the part you don't normally see behind closed doors. The humble side, the poise filled side that only an artist ever really sees.
