Biography

I am a graduate of Salem College, and also Forsyth Technical Community College where I received my Associates in Applied Science in Digital Effects and Animation with a certification in Game Design. I went back to school to Forsyth Tech, because I dreamed of attending an animation school and I made my dream come true. I volunteer in art curating at a local art and coffee shop, where I occasionally sell pictures of trees, coffee cups, chairs, American flags or skylines. I also like to figure draw and paint. I also like to make bracelets, recycled card board boxes and draw imperfect cartoons. You can read more about me on my webpage.

Everyone I know is either an artist or a selector of an art collection, which makes them an artist in their own homes and offices. I buy other's art as well, because it is boring to just have my own art around. I have also met countless others who take their adult coloring pages with them and color when they have a spare moment.

My current project is based on this, creating acrylic pictures on white canvas pieces that people can buy and color. These colorless pictures can also stand alone, without anything added. It is like paint by numbers, except you have a choice. Some works are silhouettes that can be painted to match a color pallet in your home or office. Others you can add color to make it a memory, painting a sky blue for morning or bright colors for a sunset. You could even add glitter or sparkles if you want.

I want to sell art because I have so much art that I don't want to keep it for myself. I also need money to buy more art supplies for this hobby of mine. I also create art inspired by obstacles and setbacks in the human life. I hope to display this art someday.
