About the Artist
Hello! Thanks for stopping by to learn a little more about me as an artist.
I have loved creating art since I was very young, and I am largely a self-taught artist. Once I entered college, I started taking fine art classes even though that wasn't my major at the time. Because of the art classes I fell even more in love with the arts, which led to me getting a degree in Fine Art, in addition to my other degrees. This degree allowed me to explore creativity and further my knowledge and proficiency in art. I took many types of art classes so I could learn things such as: drawing, painting, sculpture, basket weaving, and ceramics.
Although I believe that individuality is critical in art, I also think that artists can learn a ton from the great artists such as Van Gogh, Warhol, and Lichtenstein. By learning from artists of the past, we can create new innovative art styles that connect the past to the present in our art. This is why I combine both modern and classic techniques.
I believe a painting isn’t just a piece of art, it’s a creation that has a story behind it. I know most artists believe an art piece should be an expression of themselves, but to me it is also something that allows the viewer and the artists' thoughts, emotions, and stories to merge. The next time you look at a painting think about what it makes you feel. Does it make you feel happy? Hopeful? Does it remind you of something? What is its' story, or does it make you want to create a story for it?
What is your style? My art style ranges from elegant and calming to expressive and bold.
Why are you unique as an artist? I am unique as an artist because I am also a writer and entrepreneur. In addition, a percentage of every art piece or product I sell is donated to an organization of my choice. You can learn more about the types of organizations I currently support Here.
What are your goals as an artist? My main goals as an artist are to:
- Create art pieces that make people think about different topics and emotions.
- Help people express their personal style with my creations.
- Be an environmentally friendly artist. This includes being careful to not waste materials, using safer materials, placing recycled items into my mixed media creations, and creating upcycled products.
Who do you create art for? I create art for people who enjoy making a difference in the world and who love to express their personal style through the clothes they wear, the products they buy, and the art they display in their homes or businesses.
