About Me

Background

A box of colored pencils and handful of "How To" books spread out on my living room floor launched my journey into the art world. I've been in love with pencil painting ever since!

Experience

I am a self-taught artist with over 15 years of experience in colored pencil, graphite, and pastels. I specialize in detailed, dramatic paintings including wildlife art and pet portraits!

Vision

Most of my inspiration comes from nature. Birds and animals are my subjects of choice! It is my goal with each portrait to not only capture the likeness of a subject, but also to give the viewer a glimpse into the animal's heart and soul.
