This piece is inspired by a character in one of my favorite childhood shows, Avatar: the Last Airbender. The behind-the-scenes animation process for this show was one of my first introductions to technical drawing skills at 10 years old. I remember watching snippets of the animators using live action martial art movement as reference. This show was also very spiritual it helped me learn fundamental concepts of nature, meditation, and the ebb and flow of life. The show recently made a comeba

Title or Location: Magnolia Dream
This drawing started as a tribute piece to a musician that I am a fan of, Playboi Carti, and was inspired by the Art Nouveau style. I used colored pencils and Posca markers to get the vibrant colors I wanted, and I was very excited with the outcome. This project taught me compositional skills as well as the benefits of sticking to a defined color scheme.

Title or Location: Nubian Princess
This canvas was an old painting sitting on the floor of my studio. I decided to paint over it, so for a few months I used it to clean off my brushes of extra paint, my roller when I was gelli printing and ink and anything else I had left over from what I had been working on. I then collaged some things on with the intention of painting a skull on it. Being an intuitive painter, when I got out my oils and was about to begin, I knew it had to be a portrait. This was painted from a photo I got o

My new painting In the Midst Of the Golden Sea, oil on panel, 9x12. This is the wheat field I'm driving by to work every day. This year I really wanted to capture it before it's harvested. That tree in the middle is like a guardian watching over the gold It was getting close to sunset time, so the light was especially warm, resting on the yellow-golden fields, reflecting red on the background trees, perfectly contrasting the blue skies. It was such a harmony in colors, that I couldn't resist, an

Title or Location: Golden Hour on the Tower
One of our favorite places to watch the sunset is in front of this tower at Nokomis Beach. This painting started as a small watercolor plein air sketch. I really enjoyed it and wanted to do a larger painting in oil of that magical moment when there are just a few fleeting seconds of light left. The light changes dramatically, so I used a photograph as a reference to bring this painting to life.
