I humbly attempt to document the extraordinary beauty of creatures whose paths I cross, in hopes of inspiring deep appreciation, and wildlife conservation. As a playful respite from arduous portraiture, I am inspired by my portraits' vibrant colorations to create companion abstracts.

Biography

Born in 1988, I began life in the countryside near Cape Romain Wildlife Refuge. I was surrounded by the low country's bountiful wildlife and I loved to draw at an early age. It helped that I was homeschooled. I was able to complete my studies and focus on art and music. I began selling oil wildlife portraits in my teens. 

My art career was almost derailed with the lure of a piano scholarship. After a year, I returned to the College of Charleston and earned my studio art degree in 2011. I have been a full time painter ever since. 

I was introduced to INK & brush at the College of Charleston. INK immediately became my passion. Because INK was not the norm in Charleston at the time, I explored other mediums and surfaces. By 2016, I resolved to follow my passion and have made INK and Chinese watercolor my sole medium. 

 

I love working directly with collectors and designers. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions.
