About

I was born in California, but grew up in the conservative Mormon town of Provo, UT. As soon as I could, I moved to what I thought of as the "big city," Salt Lake, and left the church I was raised in. In that den of iniquity, I attended the University of Utah and received my BFA.

I received my MFA with an emphasis in printmaking from California State University at Long Beach in 2011, (on the dean’s list with Phi Kappa Phi Honors Society membership).

I now live in downtown Los Angeles with my partner and two cats and I love it here.
