Currently an undergraduate at Hollins University, majoring in English/Creative Writing and minoring in Studio Art and Psychology.|
Favourite hobbies and activities include: drawing, writing, photographing nature, listening to/finding music, reading, learning new techniques and information to improve artistic skills, and a newly found love of wheel-throwing ceramics.
She has begun writing a novel, the inspiration coming from her first creative writing class at Hollins; she also has a few ideas for poetry collections swirling around in her head at the moment, and is in the process of sorting them out and lovingly birthing them onto paper. She has also begun writing a biography prose-poem for Holocaust Survivor Elsa Miller, a member of the Women's Orchestra of Auschwitz, and is finding the research and writing process very exciting. Several of her poems have been published, and she has contributed artwork and photography to the speculative literature magazine The Cyborg Griffin and the student periodical The Album at her university. She has also participated in the Quaking Aspen (Volume 3) "American Dream" project and workshop with artists Sue Johnson and Roy Baugher; she has relief prints from this project as part of collections in several prominent institutions.
As of January 2014 she has travelled to Ireland, Germany, and Austria and hopes to continue travelling the world. France is next on her list. She plans on being fluent in French and German one day.
She is President of the alternative spiritualities club Bell, Book, and Candle and her university's Student Religious Life Association, and additionally participates in two literary clubs on campus.
