Mixed media artist with a love for design & nature. Skilled in a variety of mediums, I love to combine color & texture to create aesthetics that can accurately communicate beauty to an audience. My artistic journey has been unconventional at best, but I feel that it has only broadened my ability to create; pulling from so many different experiences, I have a unique perspective that others do not.
