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.

“There is something so captivating about drawing life! No matter how long I’ve been drawing, I’m still amazed to watch a flat piece of paper or canvas come alive!! It’s as if life has been breathed into the work and I can feel the subject’s presence. Even in my recent paintings of colorful bottles, the exhilaration is there when the bottle begins to emerge three dimensionally. I can feel the smooth, cool texture of the glass and the warmth of the light passing through into shadows. The journey to the end result gives me such a rush that I hurry back to do it all over again!”
