To paint is to create, and creation is what drives me. As a multidisciplinary artist my paintings are deeply informed by my work as an actor, dancer, writer and Shakespearean scholar. Stories inspire me, and storytelling is my calling.
My paintings are largely abstract, often figurative and are meant to invoke a sense of longing, romance and the strength of the feminine energy. I hope to challenge my audience by inviting them to see their own narrative within my brushstrokes and colors.
Being an artist has brought me many exciting opportunities, including several murals along the East Coast and features in various publications. I have also been commissioned by Universities to paint statement pieces for their student centers and worked as a live event painter for weddings, festivals and conferences.
While I do hold a Master of Fine Arts from George Washington University in Classical Acting I am a self-taught visual artist in constant exploration. My work as a professional stage and film performer and painter has taken me all over the United States this last decade. The people I meet, the experiences I have, the makeshift art studios I practice in as I travel all teach me about painting and reinforce the responsibilities of being an artist. I believe fiercely that artists must create new work. History is remembered through artists. The future is designed by artists. We are essential.
2020 was a long, hard year, but it brought my art career many blessings. I illustrated my second children's book, founded my own Creative Consulting Firm, and joined Gallery La La. I look forward to a lifetime of new stories, new paintings and new opportunities.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about my artist's journey.
