Song of Songs

Final project, inspired by -- Song 1:2-4
"Let him kiss me with kisses of his mouth for better is your love than wine, your anointing oils are fragrant, your name is better than perfume poured out.
Therefore women love you!
Draw me after you, let us run!
Let the king bring me into his chambers--

The colors in my painting where inspired by instructions from my professor (tools he provided for us time after time) and all the beautiful artist that surrounded me in my class, my longing for wanting to become an artist and daring to let go. I may have lacked the words, identifiably "art" about the subject and the sequence of each project, but contained myself as I looked around and with curiosity learned from each of my classmates; colors, techniques and they too inspired me to be.

Life Gave Me Lemons

My work is about showing examples of positive coping mechanisms. This piece specifically tells the story of world ranked tennis pro Judy Flook and her dream to make a living off playing tennis. She inspires me to seek fun in bad times.


Fear is My Biggest Enemy

The purpose of this video is to show positive example of a coping mechanisms. This particular piece was inspired by my grandma, who had an epiphany while staying at a casino hotel.


Wrinkle Proudly

This piece was created as a reaction to advertising that sells a fictitious lifestyle. The goal was to create a poster for social change that uses a positive coping mechanism.
