By POP UP AND PAINT TEAM
Kanye West, Honda Accords, Chicago Institute of the Arts – These are a few of my favorite things! I am 22 years old & currently reside in Albion, Michigan. When I’ve got some down time I enjoy channeling my creativity through painting, ink/lead drawing, film/digital photography, collages, poetry, sculpture, & even my cooking! Currently aspiring to be an art educator or a muralist. I was born & raised in Iron Mountain, Michigan & strongly believe that growing up in “da U.P.” (Upper Peninsula) shaped me into the person that I am today. I have an undeniable love for exploring all that the great outdoors has to offer. While in high school I participated in every art class allotted, but my love for art was born quite some time before that.
Fun fact – One of my pen & ink drawings is in a permanent art collection located at the first college I studied at, Bay De Noc (West) .
To say I’m elated to be a part of Pop Up & Paint is an understatement. I began teaching step-by-step acrylic painting classes in my hometown at the age of 18 & taught for two years. I couldn’t have found a better company to continue instructing for. Come paint with me!
