I have been creating for as long as I can remember, from painting on canvas at age two, to designing and selling custom wallets in elementary school, to sewing, quilting and knitting during middle school, to diving deep into printmaking, pottery, jewelry, and historical apparel throughout high school. These various mediums and experiences have helped hone my love of creative practice and appreciation of craftsmanship.
Currently, I attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison and plan to double major in Textiles & Fashion Design and Computer Science. These two fields each center around the core principles I enjoy: design, innovation, creative output, and the ability to apply a skill to create a usable product. CS stimulates the part of me that loves math, organization, and problem solving. TFD allows me to continue to produce art with a meaningful purpose.
