I graduated from Lewis and Clark College in Spring 2020 with degrees in Environmental studies and Studio Art. In both fields, I work at the intersection between art and social/environmental action. Currently, I am gaining a wealth of knowledge about plants in the PNW as a fine gardener in Portland, OR. I am interested in issues regarding land stewardship, agriculture, climate change, social justice and economic inequalities. I am working on expressing my experience learning about these subjects through detailed oil painting and sculpture.

“I believe quite sincerely that in these difficult times we need more than ever to keep alive those arts from which [we] derive inspiration and courage and consolation-in a word, strength of spirit” -Rachel Carson 1999
