I am a creative writing student graduating in May. I've taken many courses on grammar and writing which has made me skilled in my field. I'm quite good at editing fiction pieces, as well as writing anything creative. I have taken some journalism classes, though it's not my specialty.

I have been drawing for as far back as I can remember; sometimes I feel as if I was born with a sketch pad and pencil in hand. My love for art and my ability to draw comes from my father who I spent many an afternoon watching sketch and draw. I am self taught and have no formal training, but that does not hinder me from my life long dream of some day becoming a children's book illustrator. To be able to bring to life the author's ideas and characters of the story into illustrations to help a child further understand and enjoy the story, would be a thrill to me. As for the topics of my art, I like to draw the many beautiful and interesting sights in this world that catch my eye and inspire me, both as a human being and an artist. I work in a variety of mediums including: pen and ink, scratch board, oils, acrylics, colored pencils, wood burning and sculpting. The ultimate reward or joy for me is to inspire feelings or emotions in anyone who looks at my work, even if it is something as simple as a memory or a smile.
