I have always appreciated creative expression that makes me feel something in my gut. I love expressing myself through art and music. With my art, I strive to draw emotions from other people, from joy to sadness to surprise or something in-between. I've always been attracted to the 'ugly beautiful'. I find it inspiring to combine traditional and digital media in the same piece. I may start with a drawing on paper, scan it and then use Photoshop and Illustrator to create the lines and colors. I also will take photographs and scans of textures, such as old paper or leaves, and use them as fills or backgrounds for parts of the pictures. I like the interaction of clean, solid areas with grungy, rotting textures. When working with traditional media, I love combining oil paints with charcoal and pastels so I can create that contrast that I am looking for. I love colors and often use a very wide range in my work. Some of my paintings portray a dark mood with specific areas done in detail, while other areas are more abstract, messy and expressive. Another side of me loves creating fun, whimsical pieces of people and animals with big, strange eyes. I plan to focus on creating more of this type of work to help raise awareness and funds for animal organizations.

I have also been a graphic and web design consultant for over 10 years. I have worked for a variety of clients including artists, small and large businesses, non-profits and tech start up companies. My resume includes logos and branding, websites and landing pages, promotional materials and brochures, illustrations, packaging and more. I love learning new software and technology and enjoy working in different styles. Read Less
