My figures don’t have titles or names or stories behind them in a traditional sense, because to me, they’re more like feelings. Those very human moments of complex, layered emotions, that are difficult to describe in words (which is exactly why I make them into paintings instead!). The paintings themselves are layered in texture, from raw canvas and the bare bones of a pencil sketch, all the way up to thick impasto paint. Vibrant color suggests a look deeper than the surface layer to represent our inner turbulence in a dramatic, visually beautiful way.
Welcome! I’ve been painting and making art since I was 14, studying privately under nationally recognized artist, Tamara Geddes, and receiving my B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Nevada, Reno.
I currently live and work out of Orange County, California where I am featured at the Hugo Rivera Gallery in Laguna Beach.
If you’re interested in owning my paintings, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and I can put you in touch with my galleries or arrange a private sale.
I am always happy to work on private commissions in my signature style, as well as traditional portraiture. Find out more about commissions.
I am also the founder and CEO of The Painting Bee where I work as a Life and Career Coach for Artists and co-founder of Art Global which is dedicated to empowering artists to create their own successful, profitable career in the arts.
I enjoy connecting with fellow artists, collectors, and art lovers of all kinds. Let’s talk!
