I have always been an artist, just born this way. I began to draw from emotion. Drawing the details of my environment and how I felt about it. Joy, sadness, pain, and triumph, all of which I couldn't verbally express. My art was my therapy. My art became my stage.
My painting process mainly focuses on layers and texture using black and strikingly bold colors. Florals and people has always been a favorite theme. Creatively, I expand into hand beading and sewing leather bags.
I believe that this is an incredible time in my life to elevate myself and others with my creative works.
