Art is an expression of the depth of my feelings and observations. Inspiration is everywhere!
My influence for the arts was my mother who was an artist and musician. I recall coming home after school and the familiar smell of turpentine and oil paints.
Growing up around art I was inspired to go to college and was an Arts major and received my BFA in Fine Arts at the University of California. I went on to make a life career out of visual arts as a graphic designer for a variety of companies and am currently a business owner at Rosepapa Creative where we specialize in web design and promotional marketing.
My goal in my art is to express the seemingly common in a unique way. Subtle movements of light, vibrant or subdued colors, and the curiosity of the places and things around me. I continue to be challenged by trying to capture peoples likeness, and seek to find that uniqueness that is within all people. I enjoy working in colored pencils, pastels and graphite.
“I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart.”
