I create art that mainly features people. I’ve always been drawn to and have been fascinated by eyes- all the various colors and how each lash must be delicately placed. I also put meaning into the art that I paint and illustrate. I incorporate abstract figures and ideas into my work to explore the messages and stories that I can tie into it. My most current purpose in art is to emotionally move others with thought provoking, creative artwork. I combine my passion for poetry and painting, by creating illustrations that compliment the poems I write. My artwork is beautiful and colorful. Its eye catching qualities capture the attention of people passing by, and they stay to admire the strokes of each brush and the layers of color. But my art also tells a story. As one would continue to look into my work they would unfold its meaning; experiencing a journey as their eyes glide over my work until they reach the borders.
