When I was in preschool, my teacher introduced me to art to keep me busy and my mind calm. From that point on all I wanted to is draw and paint. As I got older, this love never faded and eventually I went to college to study art.
I use many different mediums, such as wood, acrylics, oil paint, fabric, & etc. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. I will paint on anything I get my hands on! I'm always up for a challenge! Each idea that I envision manifests into its own unique art piece.
Many of my pieces are inspired by women in my family & mentors. I love researching before I create a painting, and I'm influenced by photos that capture my eye. I love recreating poses from images that I find, and I love painting images that reflect my culture.
