I have always been fascinated by drawing features of the human face and how it communicates beauty, character, and emotion of the person featured in the art. I use a mixture of charcoal and acrylic paint to play with elements of a painting as well as a drawing. I enjoy the aesthetic created when the raw material being used (charcoal, or paint, for instance) is still visible and can be enjoyed alone, but can also be read as part of the face in the artwork. I attempt to use this looser style to accentuate the feeling that is emoted from my subject.
Thank you for visiting my portfolio! I am a resident and native of Raleigh, North Carolina. I attended the North Carolina State University and graduated with a degree in Art and Design and Minor in Spanish in 2009. After graduation I lived in Spain for a year where I taught English in a secondary school. After returning to Raleigh I have focused my energy into creating art. Currently I have a studio near the downtown location where I live and create my art.
