Was a young female artist born in Los Angeles in 1978. Her passion for art and creativity spurred in multiple artistic forms which included, oils, watercolor, and most candidly in pencil, though her talent was not limited in any one medium. She also spent a great deal of her young life contributing to theater as a set artist which marked her most noted student achievements throughout her school years. She was visibly present because of her artistic abilities from an early age to the unforeseen time of her death at the age of twenty in Spring, 1999
Near the end of her life, she had begun to embark on several works incorporated as contributing public works throughout the New York City art scene with projects ranging from holiday display windows to gallery expeditions, and invitations to house in the underground night club venue, Twilo. She had also delivered her first work produced as the cover art for a local rock band’s first album, which was released as the bands demo later after her passing. As an artist and individual, she is most remembered for her unique and sometimes controversial expressions intended as depictions of the questionable and sometimes painful attributes of human behavior, which often reap at the core of human understanding. To her close friends she was an inspiration met by the virtues of acceptance and unconditional love, which encouraged those confined to labels and unsatisfying expectations, to be true in their fame as natural “outcasts” of her time. Fearless and willful, she and her work gave way to the remarkable passage of beauty that is somehow found in the tragic darkness of human nature. Sadly, while much of the artist’s original work has been published here, on Snapping Twig, the small collections is all we have of her creative existence. Still, having been quite influenced by her personal message, and awed be her rare, and immediate gift – her memory remains an inspiration to us, and we credit that memory to the existence of this website. Thank you for remembering the artist.
