A Little About Me
I was first introduced to drawing by my dad. I would watch him as he rendered my favorite cartoon characters and hand me the drawings to keep (some of which I still have today).
Graphite is my chosen medium as I've grown accustom to using pencils over many years of drawing. Seeing beyond color and focusing on values, light and shadows help me to portray the people I draw.
As a portrait artist I recognize that everyone has the same facial features, yet we are all uniquely different. I love the challenge of rendering faces and expressing the different personalities of the individuals I draw. My goal is always to portray each person as they are, fearfully and wonderfully made.
Update as of January 2022
I've made the decision to forgo commission requests at this time. I'm working on a personal project, as well as developing an online drawing class. With a new full-time job, there is just no time for commissions.
I love my amazing family, experiencing new things and going on exciting adventures!
