Quotes are one of my inspirations. I use a variety of mediums such as oil paint, ceramics, and mixed media when constructing my work. I create pieces that focus on blending colors with other painted objects on canvas. Texture and color are my most loved aspects of art. I often envision more than one concept in an art form. My work, I’ve found is very feminine because all women are beautiful in their own way. A reason why I love art so much is because you can create something out of nothing, art is never perfect and it shouldn’t be.
