If you asked five-year-old me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would’ve answered without hesitation: an artist. And while my dream occupation changed throughout my childhood, I never abandoned my love of creating art.
I started drawing mandalas in college as a way to relax and de-stress. As time went on and I grew to love mandalas and zentangle even more, I started experimenting with more shapes, colors, and styles.
Throughout college and even after graduation, I wanted a platform to share my art with others. Besides a handful of art classes in middle and high school, I’ve never taken formal art studio classes, and I’ve always struggled with feeling like I'm not a "real" artist. However, I believe the beauty of art is its subjectivity and accessibility - anyone with an idea, a pad of paper, and a pencil can create something meaningful.
Today, I work part-time at the university from which I graduated, and I spend most of my spare time running my small business. Thank you for supporting my dreams! I hope you’ll enjoy my artwork as much as I enjoy creating it.
