Colored Pencil/Pastel

 

Paper Sculpture

 

About

Whether I create using Colored Pencils, Pastels or Paper Sculpture, my process and
objectives are the same: to achieve realism through detail, control, and discipline.

I am drawn to animals and nature as the focus of my art, these subjects bring wonder and warmth to me. The process of creating artwork takes me to a place where I can reflect, learn, and be challenged; these ingredients encourage my personal growth.

I have always struggled to find the right words in conversations, the challenge to move ideas from thought to voice is real.  Art is the platform that I am able to express my thoughts and emotions, it has finally given me a voice and the ability to let go. The creative process is
freeing and through each creation, I am visually able to share my heart.
