Since I can remember, I've been drawing/singing/dancing, although only family and close friends may recall the singing and dancing parts. Regarding the visual arts, I've always gravitated toward the subjects of people and animals. Portraits became a go-to, and are increasingly meaningful and therapeutic to me. They serve as a real-time biography, that to me is much more exciting than words, because it's made of images. I love the process of trying to capture one of billions of fleeting thoughts and feelings by transposing it into something visual, something that can in some ways be "kept" forever as a nod to a particular moment or experience.
Drawing may be the one skill that I hold closest to my heart, but I love to "create things" ... Illustration, painting, design, photography, printmaking, costumes and props... you get the idea. I became involved with both music and performance art at an early age, and that helped cultivate a love for things of color and movement.
It's satisfying to know when someone enjoys my work, because I know what it feels like to be moved by art and music. If you'd like to create a custom piece together, make a purchase, or you just want to talk, please don't hesitate to contact me!
