Art and creating has been a major discipline and source of succor for me since the introduction of crayons at age five. Throughout my creative endeavours I have experience wonderful, interesting people and a plethora of experiences to add to my repertoire. Whether used for creative therapy, media communication, or personal gratification; one word, image or ideation given to expand upon, inspires a unique piece of Art.!
I enjoy working on all types of art projects and am capable of following strict directions as well as conceptualizing. You will always be given thumbnails to approve before final art is started. No work to big or to small, 8x20' murals down to pencil sketches for publication.
