I am a passionate, self taught visual artist. Born and raised in Kansas City. I fell in love with painting when I was searching for an outlet and a way to reclaim my voice. I work primarily with acrylic and oil paint on canvas, mixed media, digital art and mural work. I am dedicated to creating work that evokes emotion within the viewer and leaves a lasting impact. I aim to capture and visually express the aura, essence or subtle energy of a subject. My focus has been in figurative painting, surrealism, and landscapes. My intention is to uplift, encourage and empower people through my art.
