I am an undergraduate double major in Art Studio and Communication.

I began painting from a very young age. My strength in painting resulted from a combination of drawing and storytelling. I believe that being a successful painter comes first from observing the structure of objects and landscapes, while recording how light hits the surfaces of these focal points. Secondly, successful painters master the art of storytelling with minimal information.

I have strong interest in Realism and Futurism. Although an odd pair, I appreciate the accuracy, detail, manipulation of the form, and “breaking the fourth wall” with Realism; whereas, with Futurism, I enjoy the movement that is conveyed and the effect the colors have on the image. Additionally, I like Expressionism, International Style Architecture, Baroque Art, and most German, Spanish, and Dutch painters.
