I am an artist and illustrator living in Milwaukee. My work is mainly figurative, often includes portraiture, botanical shapes and subjects, and is inspired by the human experience, the female form, contrasting plays of light and shadow and organic imagery. Working mainly with traditional media on canvas, wood and paper, my paintings and illustrations are created with combinations of graphite, ink, watercolor, colored pencil and acrylic. Each piece incorporates a variety of mediums and techniques utilizing colors and flowing line work to create movement, mood and emotion. The themes and subjects of my pieces are mainly inspired by nature, fashion and lifestyle, motherhood, health and wellness and yoga. I always strive to push the boundaries of my creativity and to continue growing and learning as an artist.
