I'm a freelance mixed-media artist based in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. In 2013, I picked up my paintbrush and palette knife after a 30-year hiatus. I've always loved creating art and practiced it until I left college. After seeing a friend of mine whose artwork is wonderful, I decided to get back into creating art.
About My Work
Art is what I love most in this world, and my goal is to be able to retire and create art full-time. I work in several media, including:
My work is very diverse, ranging from abstract to portraits, landscapes and still life. I have completed several commission pieces and am inspired by many of my friends' talents (e.g. photography painting, writing, journaling, etc.).
