I am a visual artist that was born in Washington, DC but grew up in Riverdale, MD. I graduated from Parkdale High School and University of MD and currently pursuing an animation degree from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh-Online. My specialty lays in portraiture but I also excel in murals. I have been painting for 15years and can paint from photographs or from imagined concepts. My style is very lively and vibrant. My favorite medium is oil but also love using chalkpastel and pencil. I love bring out the character of whatever subject I'm blessed to paint. Along with the natural elements of painting I also have a computer design background that includes designing logos, posters, websites and more.
