Artist Statement



DESIGNER, ARTIST, INSTRUCTOR, AND MENTOR

II am a professional artist and Designer in the Sacramento area. I have a love for being creative with my clients in their home and office projects. Art has always been a love of mine. Because I visit so many homes and office I decided to extend my professional ability to create wonderful spaces for my clients. I want to bring more knowledge to the public on how I create my artwork and how it brings life to their spaces.
I love the color, texture and the flow of the Pastel medium that I can use to make the piece fit in that special place. I mostly blend the pastels and use vibrant hughes. I build layer on top of layer to get the effect I want. I use different papers to create different effects that I want and go from there. I am an abstract artist and love the journey it takes me.
I also work in Acrylics which I am now working with some new ideas, and will be sharing that with all of you soon.
I love the energy that I feel when I work with my paintings which I share with my clients in their homes.
Acrylics gives me freedom to explore smooth and texture surfaces. This medium is much more forgiving which I really like.
As I continue to do my creative artwork, I will be following my passion in the Design field so I can blend Art and Interior Design together.
Come join me in the "Journey of Possibilities" I will share with you going forward.
