I have always loved being a student of art. A pivotal moment in my education was having the fortune to study with Botso Korisheli and David Settino-Scott on the Central Coast. My learning continued as I studied and received a bachelor of fine arts degree from Cal State Long Beach in 2004.
I now paint, teach, and live in Long Beach, California, a community I truly love.
I work primarily in oils although I enjoy many other mediums such as ink, graphite, colored pencil, acrylic, water color, and paper mâché.
I find myself attracted to color in flowers and leaves, organic forms, and beautiful simple things of nature.
