A Washington, D.C. based studio artist and painter - I specialize in creating large, brilliantly colored oil paintings of figures or landscapes. My passion comes from painting anything that spontaneously appears in vibrant, emotional, or dramatic lighting. Hope you enjoy the colors!

Graphic Design

I'm a professional print designer going on 6 years. I am very fast and affordable. I love bright colors, bold fonts, and to create elements in a design that pop!

Painting

I've been an obsessive painter since highschool. To this day, my easel is never left empty for long. Ask me about any painting on this site, or a potential commission.

Photography

I'm a semi-professional photographer, going on 8 years. I love shooting weddings, headshots, and anything else appearing in amazing lighting.

Artistry

I'm a huge do-it-yourself-er. I'm always trying my hand at various crafts. My favorite however has been designing and implementing elaborate, custom beadwork jewelry.

La Lumière Exquise

Jan 16, 2014

The Exquisite Light (artistic expressions just sound prettier in French) On some days there is a certain time between afternoon and twilight (or sunrise and dawn), where the light becomes magical, something special that makes me pause and stare. One of the driving forces behind my painting is a constant urge to capture the lighting […]

What do you need to start painting?

Jan 29, 2013

Lately I’ve been hearing this question a lot: “I just want to try starting a painting for fun. What do I need?” This question only leads to others, mainly, “How much experience do you have?” and “What is this for? What is your goal?” Like any “hobby” from rock climbing to knitting, painting is a […]
