Progress is a rough road worth traveling.

As a self-taught artist

 my crude paintings slowly evolved to have over 30 colors and be more massive than cars! 

 

Inspiring bigger dreams in others through scale and design is my goal.

 

While I may paint walls,

my real job is making landmarks.

The purpose of my art is to reconnect people with nature as the world becomes increasingly urbanized.

 

The chances of doing my first mural at UC Davis Medical Center were 0.49%. However, I might also play a role in creating one of the world's most giant murals! Click on the images for more photos and details.

Creative vision...

in service to humanity drives me to make paintings on the global climate crisis. 

 

Therefore, I'll be completing fewer murals between 2022-2023.

While working in research, I'd explain to families weekly how I'm not an intern. When my colleague walked in, he'd get called a

"nice doctor," yet we had the same job.

Similar things have happened while making murals. Dozens of times, people congratulated my male assistant while asking me,

"how does it feel to help out?"

Being underestimated is a concerning part of many women's lives, and here's my story.
