I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2017 with a degree in writing, a minor in art, and not a clue what I was doing. Now I work as a marketing content writer in Grand Rapids and dedicate my evenings to my dog, Vida. I’ve dabbled in many forms of art from painting, drawing, sculpture, and ceramics but only a few years ago fell into the surreal world of collage art. I’ve found the most order in chaos and a quiet mind in searching - the shelves at Goodwill or the dusty corners of antique stores for '60s books, old magazines, or the newest issue of Rolling Stone to cut up after skimming through it. Searching for separate images that weren’t even from the same decade but now fit seamlessly on the same plane. And searching, always, for new inspiration in music, conversation, and the mundane of everyday life.
