Personal expression and the creative process using the exploration of color, light and motion, best represent why I am drawn to making art.
I remember picking up a pencil and drawing as a kid. My middle school years were spent in Rome, Italy, where I was exposed to a wide variety of art and artists. I filled tablets with sketches and watercolors and started cartooning. In high school, I was the cartoonist and artist for the school paper and continued to sketch and paint for pleasure. It was natural for me to pursue a degree in studio art at the college level. I received a degree in Fine Arts from Humboldt State University.
