About the Art:

My art is influenced by classic illustration and process art. I choose to work in ink, pencil and watercolor in various combinations to express my ideas. Art making is pure joy and I can’t believe I get to do this!

Education:

Self taught (thanks to all of my teachers and mentors who guided me along the way!)
