My original first love is working with oil on canvas. I have been working in a more monochromatic style. Lately, I have been experimenting with bold acrylic colors on canvas.
My hand-painted custom shoes are the most popular item that I create. These shoes are painted using paint brushes and acrylic fabric paint. Doing brushwork allows me to get great detail in the designs.
Drawings are something that I do to supplement my other work. I use drawing as a way to maintain my skills and also to sketch journal my day-to-day.
While I did go to school for design, most of my artwork experience is self-taught. My fine art practice informed my design practice, but fine art was always my core. I always find myself returning to my art practice when I need to re-discover myself and my own soul.
I mainly refer to myself as a painter and my key mediums are oils and fabric paints. By base is oil paints, I always appreciate that I can rework oils. They are patient with me.I do like to experiment and challenge myself with other mediums because it makes me appreciate the mediums I already work in.
I love music. I am not a musician myself, but I am always inspired by how songs are created and then how the artists interpret their own songs live. I love watching artists that really love their work and how their audience interprets that work.
