I've loved art and creating throughout my life, since I was old enough to pick up crayons to this day. I am passionate about art! I use art as an outlet to convey my feelings and use as a different way of communicating with others. One of many reasons I love and produce art is I feel the process is just as important as the product itself.
I use many different mediums such as watercolor pencils, drawing pencils, acrylic paints, colored pencils, ink with Chinese brushes on rice paper and watercolors. All shapes and sizes I use for brushes.
The different styles in my work I use are from whimsical to realism. A large variety of different types such as watercolor pencils, mixed media, paintings, collages, abstract, and many more. I recently started using tiles to paint on.
I draw and paint different subjects such as nature, landscapes, animals, people and objects. I really enjoy whimsical art the best. I love the freedom of the pencil because It can take you anywhere. I use bright vivid colors in my pieces.
I have taught many children art education and the love of art. Some peers have told me I can have a child-like style to which is unique in the way I create my art. I am even thinking of becoming a children’s book illustrator!
I have studied art at Rosemont College in PA and received a bachelors degree in Studio Art. Education is very important to me and you’re never too old to learn new things. I have taken many art courses and workshops in the past and love to learn new techniques and different styles of art.
Overall, I am very lucky to have found art as an outlet to use as another language of mine! Each piece touches my soul. I hope you enjoy exploring this journey through the artwork I have created for today.
