I am an artist based in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. I spent six months traveling around the world on a Henry Walters Traveling Fellowship. My original focus was to study how pattern and ornamentation evoke the sacred, which was a wonderful and flexible lens to view the world through. On my journey I discovered so many incredible things, and met so many incredible people. I believe art exists in the everyday, and is all around us. Beauty is stumbled upon and found out of context. Once it is realized it reveals itself as truth. Sometimes this truth stays with us, sometimes it is fleeting. I love this and want to share it as much as I can .
