Artist's Statement

I create my artwork to communicate with the world. I have loved to paint and draw ever since I was a little girl. Art is very important in my life; it is a passion of mine and it keeps me sane in an insane world. People, nature, and animals influence my artwork the most because they are all ordinary things I see on a daily basis that most would overlook but I see this amazing winsomeness in. Each of these represent a small fraction of the world but if they did not exist the world would be dull. My art is unique to me because I paint and draw memories from my life therefore I have a deeper connection to my work. Each project I put my heart and soul into. I try to use my artwork to convey to the onlooker that beauty is in everything from a serene mountain landscape to a simple line drawing of a shoe. My artwork is snapshots of my life that I am happy discuss if anyone has any interest in them.

Your art work is absolutely amazing. Like me abstract is your strongest point. You have a way with colors and lines. You always use the most appealing colors and your scratch art project is very well detailed. It looks amazing!

Thank you @CassieNicole! I had a lot of fun making all of my artwork and I really love using color in my artwork at the same time though I love working in black and white like my scratch art work and charcoal project. I guess I just love how dramatic something like a lot of color gives a piece of art and the same with black and white.
