About The Artist
I am a lifelong artist with education and work history as a graphic designer, photographer, 3D artist, and painting instructor. My repertoire in the arts is ever growing; through my artistic explorations, I enjoy a multitude of mediums and styles that inform my compositions and techniques. Things as simple as light interacting with an object can inspire a scene in my minds eye. I tend to gravitate towards folklore and eclectic subject matter with a style that increasingly includes bright color palettes and surrealism. Visual and literary references inspire my compositions that can be elusive even to me, like waking from a dream and not being able to visualize or articulate it until after the paint has hit the canvas. This process leaves me to trust that as I paint, the piece will take on a life of its own, and turn into something that embodies my vision in ways I often don't expect.
