Ever since I can remember, I have always been artistic.I remember as a young girl, I
would constantly have a pencil and a piece of paper in my hand, My free time was spent
drawing and coloring while other children were usually outside playing. My passion lies in
macabre art. My paintings invoke dark emotional feelings that I feel should to be shared
with the world. I focus on emotional and sometimes unpleasant subject matter that
usually draws the viewer in, Its very therapeutic.
My portrait work is something that helps me focus my energy for obsessive attention to
detail. Its nice to have the contrast and keeps me busy.
I continue to push myself as a self taught artist, I challenge myself everyday. I constantly
get asked "Where have you studied fine art??" and
"What schooling have you received?" The best feeling is always letting people know that
I'm completely self taught
