I was born and raised in Moore, Oklahoma. I graduated from Westmoore High School in 2015. I found my passion for artistry when I attended the Wilson Arts Integrated Elementary School, and have pursued that passion ever since. My first art show was when I was five years old at the Wesley Montessori School for a charitable fundraiser. When I was sixteen my art was accepted into the Oklahoma City Arts Festival where I was able to showcase my work. My love for environmental design was sparked by an article on Mike Reynolds’ Earthships in Taos, NM. A perspective drawing class later allowed me to visit this structures and draw even more inspiration for my own future works.
In addition to my love for art, I have a dedication to serving others. From studying Interior Design, I have been able to learn how interior environments can help make more beneficial lives for its users. My passions of art and helping people have been connected by my studies. I have gone on to do further research, and will be graduating again next May, with my Master’s. My research has given me opportunities to go to conferences and do field research in Wichita, KS, Dallas, TX, Albuquerque, NM, Taos, NM, New York City, NY and all over Colorado. My thesis involves seeing how the environment can affect people with disabilities. My intentions are to create further guidelines on how to best help people with disabilities within the environment.
