Painting and Drawing graduate from the University of Washington School of Art, Art History and Design. 2020
Seattle based visual artist studying traditional medias to create works that express identity and dream within the context of the natural environment.
Originally from La Mesa, California, I am a Seattle-based graduating student at the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design with Honors in Painting and Drawing, 2020. I am a multiracial Asian American woman and my identity is an incredible inspiration and important aspect of how I interact with the world and how I create my works about community, the Earth, and expressions of emotions and dreams. I have also extensively studied in American Ethnic Studies and Environmental Studies, which are both fundamental in my framework of ideas and interests. I originally trained in traditional drawing and oil painting, which gave me the core skills to explore and fall in love with watercolor as my medium of choice. Watercolor as a medium is accessible and has given me much freedom and the ability to express ideas and be present wherever I create. I have had the honor of previously student teaching in fundamental drawing with Seattle-based artist Molly Vaughan at Bellevue College where I graduated with a concentration in Art (2018) as well as being a studio assistant and contributor in her Betty Bowen Award winning project Project 42, 2017. I have also been able to contribute to LGBTQ+ and women’s rights groups through organizing Portraits 4 Proceeds donation campaign in 2019.
