I can't help but to be in awe over the sheer size, power, and impressive nature of elephants. They are truly fascinating creatures of this world being powerful enough to clear land and uproot trees but gentle enough to pluck a single flower. It is amazing the level of intelligence and intuition these beings possess.

I am a mostly self-taught artist and have drawn for as long as I can remember. It wasn't until I took a drawing class when I was 18 at a local community college, that my ability was really unlocked. I had an amazing professor who was able to push me and unlock abilities I really didn't think I had. By trade, I do graphic design; however, my passion has always been with portraiture. I really enjoy working with watercolor, acrylic, color pencil and pan pastels. I am obsessed with drawing and painting and when I'm not at my graphic design job, I'm at either at home painting, working on a commission, or teaching painting classes. It's wonderful to be able to be actively involved with creating and sharing art; it's one of things that truly makes me happy.
