Since I can remember, I have practiced art and been encouraged to do so. My major supporters have been my father and my art teachers, Mrs. Howe and Ms. Blease. To this day, it has been a source of expression for me where words were unable to communicate. My first publication was in third grade and from there it has always been a prominent aspect of my world. I have studied art throughout my schooling and continue to pursue new projects that are larger and more challenging than years previously.
What makes us who we are is the common question I ask when creating my work. I am influenced not only by the psychology of people and their personal values, thoughts, and feelings but also by their physical surroundings. Nature and growth are two concepts I enjoy tackling in my art, more specifically, personal internal growth, environmental diversity, and the mechanics of the mind.
Typically, acrylic paint is my go-to when creating work but I also love watercolor, woodburning, colored pencil, and more. Similar to my subject matter, I like to indulge in a variety of media so I am continuously excited and challenged. Through my work, I hope to bring happiness and connection to my audience. I enjoy it when people look at my pieces and feel they understand them in their own personal way.
