I am a fine artist that works in a variety of two dimensional mediums. I feel that every persons perspective is unique and that some people, have a gift that allows them to share their perspective with others. I do this with realistic focuses and abstract themes, and what I like to think of as whimsical flare. I grew up loving stories and fairy tales and the illustrations filling their pages. Each illustration was like a window into the world of a book and as a reader I was enchanted. As an artist, inspired.
I have always loved to draw, however my passion for fine art and illustration was not ignited until I started college. This was the first time that I was introduced into an art community and it made a huge difference in my life. I now work with ink, graphite, charcoal, digital, and gouache. I will continue to learn more mediums through my own explorations and through fine art and design classes. I look forward to learning and growing in our art community.
I'm excited to share with you my collection of work titled “Exploration.” These pieces reflect the various stages of my three-year journey in encaustic painting. After a long break from the fine arts, I found myself needing to disconnect from the daily barrage of technology. So, I taught myself the basics of encaustics and I began experimenting in photo encaustics. I soon transitioned into abstract landscapes and nonrepresentational pieces. I enjoy exploring the texture, translucent quality, and fluidity that can be achieved through the medium.
