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.

Education
B.F.A. Virginia Wesleyan University, Norfolk, Virginia
A.A.S. Communication Design; Specialization in Illustration, Graphic Design; graduated magna cum laude
