All of my artwork is centered on what I love most, which is nature, all animals, and fantasy. I love telling stories and creating images that you have to look at closely to be able to see everything. This is because I put so much detail into every aspect of each piece. I also enjoy ornamentation design, and often put borders around my pieces that complement my love for all things decorative.
The artwork I create is all based around drawing, but recently I have been using my drawing skills to explore different processes of making art. I have been working with copperplate intaglio etchings and pen and ink drawings, then assembling and coloring everything digitally. I like to combine the older processes of hand pulling prints with digital aspects and sometimes hand- embellishing because it keeps each piece unique and brings techniques of the past into the present again.
As a recent graduate from the College for Creative Studies, I will be spending the majority of my time at my family cabin in the Leelanau Peninsula before returning to Detroit and starting my adventure into the world of art fairs.
