To define art is quite impossible and to express what it means to me is even harder. I am a freelance artist, art instructor, two-time certified makeup artist, and aspiring art therapist based out of New York. The arts are a huge realm and there is always a new way that I am discovering to express, to teach, and to create. 

My body of work consists of various media, sizes, and inspirations. Depending on my thoughts and reasons behind a piece, I choose my tools, approach, and imagery accordingly. Some of my most favorite media to work with are oil paints and charcoal, although I do use other materials such as clay and even digital platforms like procreate and photoshop.

My goal is to make works of art, by any medium, that capture a moment, a feeling, or a scenario. I treat every art piece or makeup look that I am asked to make as a way to connect. It is truly an honor to be a part of someone's memories.  From preparing students for arts admissions tests to creating custom artwork to doing a makeup look for an event, I come highly recommended by those who have worked with me; contact for more information.

All of the artwork and references are original unless posted in the "Reproductions" category (work that I have created as my reproductions of other famous works of art). Removing the signature or watermark from any of the images on the website is prohibited.

“Stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences. (Roy Ascott’s phrase.) That solves a lot of problems: we don’t have to argue whether photographs are art, or whether performances are art, or whether Carl Andre’s bricks or Andrew Serranos’s piss or Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ are art, because we say, ‘Art is something that happens, a process, not a quality, and all sorts of things can make it happen.’ … [W]hat makes a work of art ‘good’ for you is not something that is already ‘inside’ it, but something that happens inside you — so the value of the work lies in the degree to which it can help you have the kind of experience that you call art.”

— Brian Eno
