I am an artist who loves to draw, paint and work in digital media. I would consider my style to be realistic. I am especially influenced by Monet, Renior, Georgia O'Keefe and Seurat. I have always been interested in art, ever since I was in the first grade. Being creative is a very important part of my life. My inspiration comes from my late grandmother who was a creative person with amazing energy and many talented teachers I have encountered along the way.
I love to draw and paint just about anything from still lifes to landscapes to portraits using a wide variety of mediums. I also enjoy working in digital media, especially print design. I particularly enjoy digital portraiture, silkscreen, logo design and branding.
I am married and have two grown sons. I have never given up on the opportunities to create art. I am the Marketing Manager at Lincoln Land Community College Foundation and a freelance artist. I have always enjoyed helping out at the schools and working with the students. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, baking, watching old movies and spending time with my family and friends.
