About Me

Aspiring optometrist by day, artist by night! I am currently pursuing an O.D. (Doctor of Optometry) degree at Pennsylvania College of Optometry. I graduated with a B.S. in Biology with a minor in Studio Art from Nova Southeastern University.
When I am not studying or creating art, I enjoy reading books, writing stories, cuddling with my cats, or playing the Sims 4 and Splatoon on the Switch. I am an aspiring world traveler and have visited Scotland, England, Greece, and Serbia during summer of 2018 and 2019. One of my stories revolve around the Victorian era and takes place in Scotland and England so the United Kingdom has a special place in my heart. I hope to one day travel to Japan, the country that inspired me to create.
Growing up, I enjoyed many cartoons and anime which influenced my art and stories to pursue fantasy and adventures. High school transformed my art to capture the memories and roller coaster of emotions that comes with growing up. Now, I create artwork inspired by eyes, optometry, and the novel I am currently writing.
