Sometimes things feel serendipitous. This was a period where I felt so much joy and happiness, and started to experience love again. I rediscovered a past Holga photograph I took while living in Brooklyn and decided to make that the inspiration for this piece. It was taken during summer at the West Indian Day Parade and I made what I think depicts love and happiness for all.

After relocating from Seattle to NYC where she lived from 2016-2019, she moved back to the Pacific Northwest to recover from a sudden brain cancer diagnosis. She combines her love for traveling and visual storytelling with her desire to spread a message and document the changing environment through art.
“La Vie en Rose” is a nod to her love for French culture and her passion for music. The mixed media pieces in this show depict seeing life through rose-colored glasses, or the experience of finding joy and staying positive despite life’s ups and downs.
