I’m a Florida native and have lived all over the east coast of the U.S., currently in Washington, D.C. part of the year. I have a few day jobs to keep my art (and myself!) going, including: cat sitting, escape room game master, website building, and I volunteer at the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn National Museum of Contemporary Art to help others learn about and connect with this art form, as well as be inspired by the artwork and people there.
I create abstract artwork including paintings and sculptures using a variety of materials and try to incorporate non-biodegradable items that would normally just go into landfills like styrofoam that come as packaging that are unavoidable.
Acrylic paints are what I use most since they dry fast so I can work longer but also use pastels, watercolors, charcoal, and whatever happens to strike my fancy that I see used by others that have awesome effects!
My workspace is compact so staying organized is important! An extra chair stays next to me for when my cat decides to sit and watch me, nap, or stare at me until I stop working to feed her (this happens the most).
Ignore the man behind the curtain. Not exactly a quote from the Great Oz, but exactly how I feel about my work. Art isn’t about who makes it, only how someone sees and feels about the work. Take each piece as you see fit. Feel it. Love it. Hate it. Even question it!
When viewing my artwork, read the title after viewing so you can take it all in and connect in your own way before you are influenced by a description. I hope you enjoy my artwork!
