Hall lives in the Oakland, California by way of Nashville, Tennessee.  Hall received her B.F.A from San Francisco Art Institute in 2013 and B.A. in Psychology in 2009 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  Her studies in identity formation and thought construction strongly influences her work.   Her paintings play with themes of ruptured identity, vanity, and consumerism.  Abstract and surrealist influence contributes to the deconstruction and re-examination of social and personal constructs.  Through a play of layered images, she aims to fracture the divide between fine art and popular throwaway culture.  The works contain variety of media, including traditional painting, collage, as well as mixed media on paper.  Hall stylistically combines line drawing, applied paint, chiaroscuro, flat color and pattern throughout her work.  She often chooses to work with paper due to its fragility and impermanence in exploration of the parallels its innate characteristics have with those of identity.  Hall currently curates and manages the Gallery at Panorama Framing in Oakland, California.
