This painting is part of a series I did in which I called Birds and Backgrounds. I was visiting my Uncle and Aunt in Florida for a summer so I decided to paint the beautiful birds that you see in Florida. To give it a unique touch I put a patterned background behind the bird.
Like most artists I have been doing art since I was a child. I was inspired by my Grandma who held ceramic classes in her house. I graduated from the State College of New York at Oneonta where I received my Bachelors Degree with a major in Computer Art. Since graduating college I moved down south to live the dream life by the beach. After a few years of doing freelance work I decided to continue my education and get my Masters in Teaching degree from Coastal Carolina University. I graduated with my M.A.T. degree in August 2017. I now teach art to an amazing group of 6th through 12th graders. I am in the beginning of my artistic career. I balance my teaching career with my desire to be a professional artist. My passions in life include art and travel and I plan to combine those two passions in the near future.
