I am heavily inspired by artists from the cubism and abstract expressionism movements, and I use these influences to break down my subject matter into geometric forms, shadows, patterns and designs. I always start a new piece using pencils, charcoal or markers and then layer with acrylics, watercolors or oil pastels.
The female figure is the center of much of my work and is a subject matter that I am constantly studying and exploring. I get energy from supportive, passionate, strong, hard-working, nurturing, driven and fearless women. I love expressing these emotions and messages through color, shape and texture.
Pen & Ink
I have used ink as a medium for years and love its effect on paper and canvas. Faces and Figures are favorite subject matters and are quite effective in black and white.
