Thoughtful storytelling through paint, charcoal, and pencil.
Art for me has become part of my healing process. It has helped me get through grief and loss but more importantly given me strength, confidence, happiness, and a sense of accomplishment. Even though my personality is bright and bubbly, my artwork tends to portray a darker experience. My belief is that my artwork is my way of coping with things that bother me. Throughout experimenting with mediums, I have found myself consistently interested in two subjects; portraiture and animals. Each piece has its own significance to my life. Even so, I like the viewer to share their interpretations. Every one experiences life differently but we can all be connected through art.
