Hello! I am a 1L, born and raised in Rhode Island, arriving at the School of Law after receiving a B.F.A. in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design. I am an eco-vegan-yogini-artist who will always remember a 5th grade school trip to the Johnston Landfill, driving up to the top of the mountain of garbage in a school bus with mouth agape, wondering why. Now that I am here, I will be able to campaign for the earth and for animals, not letting them get squished under the boots of the government or corporate balance sheets. My art has dealt with environmental issues, and I have recently begun a new series of work where I will be as eco-conscious as possible in its creation, making my own non-toxic, earth-friendly paints and stains, with the series’ subject matter serving as the connecting of space between art, the environment, and law. I am recently married to my husband, Brent, and we live with our boxer, Lailah Bean, in East Greenwich, RI.
