2016 ECRAC McKnight Fellowship Artist
To me, art is a way of expressing something in two dimensions that normally would be taken for granted by others. I love capturing the emotional essence of that moment in time. As I pursue my passion, I hope to capture those precious moments with the magic of a paintbrush or a stick of pastel by utilizing light, contrast, value and color onto the paper or canvas. My ultimate goal is to take something ordinary and make it something magical and emotional to the viewer.
