Welcome to my gallery. I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Master's and teach English as a Second Language. I started drawing early in life, but was steered away from art because I was told I couldn't make a living at it. I love teaching, but I also love art. Besides a couple of drawing courses early in my college career, I am completely self-taught and started seriously creating art in 2010.

My specialties are pyrography on paper or wood, pen & ink, watercolor, and colored pencil. I am fascinated by detail and texture, so most of my work is up close and portrait style. My favorite subjects include wildlife, nature, people (only if they have many wrinkles and lots of character) or objects like old, abandoned, rusty cars, boats, etc.

In a world of mass produced products, a unique and original piece of art signed by the artist is a gift with a personal touch that expresses how much you care. Thank you for taking the time to visit. I hope you find as much joy in my pieces as I have found in creating them.
