She primarily works in silkscreen, illustrating everyday familiar subject material, which she enjoys pulling out of context and depicting in unexpected ways.

I am a digital illustrator specializing in cityscapes and the human figure. I use scanned materials such as fabrics, graphite drawings, and other textures to create compositions which capture the spirit of the intended image. The use of scanned materials in my digital work adds a physicality to an otherwise intangible medium, creating an intersection where the real and virtual merge. I am a 2018 graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University's department of Communication arts.
