I enjoy working with oil and acrylic paint, pen and ink, digital illustration, printmaking, digital printing and my new love: Textiles! The original illustrations for my greeting card line start with pen and ink on paper. I then take my drawings and scan them into the computer and design each card and print them myself.
I also create personal pet portraits from photos. I can create original oil paintings on canvas, greeting cards and pillows of your furry family member.
I have been drawing my whole life. I took art and photography classes throughout my undergrad years in Charlottesville. I graduated from VIrginia Commonwealth University, School of the Arts in 2006. I majored in Fine Art Illustration. While attending VCU I also had the amazing opportunity to study painting and drawing at the Lorenzo De Medici Art Institute of Florence, in Florence Italy.
