Nature is her biggest influence on her work and she enjoys all types of printing from relief to silkscreen.
"I loved my experience at the Art Establishment. I took their four session print making series and it has now become my favorite medium to work with. Everyone was super friendly. I came back to use their press and also had a good experience. Will definitely be back. ~ Alexandra C.
