I want my artwork to generate discussion about shared experiences and address social issues that we collectively face. I hope that my work unifies and empowers people. What separates us from one another and from sharing ourselves can be bridged, and I believe art can be that bridge. Art is about solving problems, not only presenting them; at is meant to be public. It speaks to everyone. Every culture on earth has harnessed the power of art to communicate. Solutions arise when people communicate, because what unites is far greater than what divides us. Few would argue that today we are in dire need of solutions.
My work is my voice and vehicle of expression. I consider myself a bit of a dreamer, and a spiritual person. My work presents my own inner spiritual vision into the realm of sight through subjective interpretation and use of skills I endeavor to master. I enjoy receiving feedback from those who encounter my work, so feel free to comment on anything I have posted on my website.
I earned a BFA from Old Dominion University, where I studied graphic design, painting, and printmaking. I am studying education at Regent University, and pursuing a Master in Education. I am certified to teach Visual Art for K-12 students in Virginia Beach public schools.
