Bio
I’m an Ohio Native who has traveled and lived throughout the US as a fine artist, caricature artist, and freelance illustrator over the past fifteen years. I graduated with an Associates Degree in Illustration at Sinclair Community College. I received a full scholarship to Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio where I received my Bachelors Degree in Illustration. Mastering a broad spectrum of mediums, techniques and subject matters has allowed me to experiment with various approaches and truly express myself in my art. After my schooling I found a strong interest in the human face and body and that is where my series has began and will someday end.

I have had numerous exhibitions of my paintings and collages across the country where I have had consistent positive feedback and sales. My Art Representative in Miami, Florida continues to exhibit and sell my work in the South Florida area. I was recently honored and excepted into the West Virginia Allied Artists.

It is an overwhelming thought that as a fine artist I have been given the ability to bring a blank ordinary surface to life with my talents. My fine art is an expression of my inner self or my diary, so to speak. One day I paint sorrow and the next, I’m drawing happiness and warmth. I approach my fine art with a passion from deep within. In my work this can be easily seen in the eyes of my subjects that stare back at the viewer. I have recently been working on magazine collages and have completed my first collection. I will now begin working again in acrylic paints where I will paint with a textured surface of thick paints and added outside objects for interest and detail.

My caricature career began in CO at Elitch's Amusement Park after college. I then continued caricaturing at private functions in the District of Columbia, MD, VA, DC, South Florida, WV,Charlotte NC & presently Ohio.
