Life is never a straight path, it’s a spiraling maze of exploration!
With a diverse creative portfolio I consider myself very adaptable to any project. My unique style would be considered mixed media with a combination of hand rendered, drawn and digital methods; with other styles of image making that include paper craft and collage. I am flexible and adaptable. I can work to deadlines too. The dream is to sell art, make art and have fun doing it and bring joy and creativity to others.
Thanks for taking the time to consider me for your creative opportunity.
