Born in Charleston S.C, raised for the most part of my life in Atlanta GA, where my art focus began. I am a self taught artist, which has learned from experimenting with paint and found material. I have been very fortunate to learn from other artist and teachers I have crossed paths with. My paintings are about the experience of light and shadow, color and texture—the play between the seen and unseen. I am inspired by bright colors, textures and life experiences. Using different mediums in my painting, I create textures and shapes for abstracts and figurative paintings. I want my painting to be playful and sometimes tell a story that the viewer can experience and relate to at very many levels. Life is not perfect, and I do project subtle imperfections in my paintings.
