Most of my work has an illustrative-painterly quality that reveals rhythmic fluid lines and flowing design. The colors I use echo the strength, beauty and allure of nature. I like to blend curvilinear stylization with traditional realism. My subjects (nature, animals, people, florals) are captured with graceful fluid lines, unifying decoration and aesthetics. I create my own personal interpretation of what I see and feel through color and visual expression of the subject.
Fine Art, Visual Communication, Painting, Illustration, Web Design and Graphic Design were my main areas of art education.

Under US copyright law, the artist-designer automatically owns all rights to the work they do for you as an independent contractor. The one exception to this is work-for-hire, which means that if a designer is your full-time employee, then any work they create is yours. A freelancer, unless specifically stated in your/their contract, is not a work-for-hire.
All rights and ownership belong to the creator of the work (unless otherwise specified in a contractural agreement).
Copyright actually refers to a bundle of rights:
- Rights to display work.
- Rights to reproduce work.
- Rights to make adaptations (derivative works).
- Native files for any work completed by a freelancer belongs to them.
