Originally from South Carolina, I am an artist based out Santa Monica, CA. I have been drawing all my life, and painting for about 10 years. Drawing is second nature to me, something I've done all my life. At one point in my life circumstances provided me with the time and opportunity to expand my work into painting. As an artist, everything to me is form and color, which I absorb from all mediums: books, videos, film. Painting was the natural progression from drawing. I have enhanced my technique by taking classes in figures, still life, plein air and abstracts, and many others.
My current work is in acrylics and oils which provide the substance to convey the colors that captivate me and accelerate images beyond reality.
