I grew up with artistic talent on both sides of my family and have been a practicing artist with Interact since 2011. I create art just for the enjoyment of it all. I simply relax and draw or paint what I feel. I am inspired by walking through nature, doing research, recording observations, and my own intuition. My style ranges from figurative to abstract depicting nature and studies of pattern and color in drawings and paintings. My medium of choice varies as I utilize graphite, acrylic, water colors, pastels, charcoal, and colored pencils in my work. The details in my work are important to me. Even though I have vision issues, I am still able to spend time tweaking out the details in my work through the use of visual aids. In the future, the two things I absolutely want to do are to sell more of my work and begin trying out other mediums, including ceramic sculpture, wheel throwing, and air brushing.
