I love the visual arts and I aim to show that within my drawings, paintings, photography, graphic art (like the background of this page seen HERE) & in any capacity I can. Since the age of four, I have had a pencil in my hand & I haven't put it down, yet.

A 33-yr old Connecticut native now residing in the US South, I create art for clients and also sell completed originals & prints of my fine artworks like this three-oil painting series (two of three are shown HERE). I received my BA (Studio Arts) from Claflin University, cum laude.

While in college (1999) I co-illustrated (with other Claflin art students) a book compiled of area childrens' stories. In 2009, I created a charcoal portrait of President Obama. I sent two prints to The White House. In 2010, I received a thank you card signed by him and the First Lady. Very humbled still!

I've recently had two art exhibits (one being solo) and participated in an alumni scholarship event in which my works were sold & bid on. I write two blogs (Wordpress and Tumblr; my links are below on this page) and am a freelance artist & freelance blogger. Last, but not least, I am currently (2013) raising funds to volunteer in Africa.

My free time: Church, creating art, blogging, reading, eating/sleeping, traveling, parks/beaches, a good bar, enjoying life!
