I am an artist of many mediums. I currently work with charcoal, acrylic, ink, pastel and watercolor. I love creating illustrious and portraying a story in one image! I am based out of Louisiana currently and will be moving to Washington State in about a year or less. I have had my art exhibited in galleries and have sold a couple painting. My style of work is more toward Impressionism. Self-taught but I plan to enter school soon to improve my knowledge of the arts and hone my skills. Work that I do is pretty flexible in style of what the customer desires. My skill would be drawing/painting the faces of people and character creation. Hourly rate depends on project.
