About Me

Artist Statement:

Art has been a part of me since childhood. I can recall spending many hours in elementary school drawing faces and figures. It wasn’t until I picked up a paintbrush in 2011, that I felt the magic of creating again. I am deeply drawn to feminine beauty, and the female face and figure is my primary muse. My work is predominantly inspired by fashion and interior design, as well as other things I find beautiful and my own inner world. Harnessing all of my inspiration to create a feminine character through color, texture, movement and composition excites and motivates me. My hope is that my art conveys a sense of beauty, intrigue and depth of emotion to the viewer.
