I been scribbling, drawing, and crafting since I was very young. After taking a variety of classes in a variety of subjects, I took a drawing class and quickly knew I wanted to pursue art as a career; the decision came as no surprise to my family and friends. In my work, I am concerned with the figural portrayal of women in art, not as an object but rather a subject with a story to tell. I tend to use myself as subject, and I play with the colors of the skin and figure. The human body is not just peach, or brown, or black, but rather a combination of blues, reds, yellows, purples, and any color imaginable. I enjoy rendering a realistic and beautiful body, while also creating the narrative that coexists with the figure. I hope to continue exploring ways to portray the human experience as I further my art education.
