Ready to Hang
This painting depicts a deer walking in the forest on a September day. I was experimenting with less color and more texture in this piece. I feel that because I used the reds, blacks, and grays, and left the background white that the painting has a light, airy, and Asian feel about it. Although there is a lot going on I still feel a peace about the artwork because of the colors and composition.
I have been drawing since I was five. Once the grownups realized that I was an artist they sent me to the museum for art classes. After I grew up I dabbled in a few different occupations, but eventually came back to my first love and earned a bachelor's of fine art degree in drawing, painting, and printmaking. My work is impressionistic, and romantic. I love doing paintings of horses (especially carousel) and women. Lately, I make my bread and butter doing animal portraits as people are truly (myself included) in love with their pets. I'm excited to have a studio this year in one of our art districts. I hope you'll enjoy browsing my sight and feel free to visit as often as you'd like.
