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.

In design, software, my sources of inspiration, trends and ways to disrupt trends change […]

“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” – David Bowie “An Endless Pursuit of all that is NOT Boring” – The title of my first senior show, way back in highschool. I wouldn’t call myself an “experimental” type of person or painter, or anywhere near that innovative. […]

Even MORE of my many views on color theory – Part 3: Choosing a Palette

Aug 01, 2014

Ironically, in opposite to the title of this post, I don’t often choose a palette when starting a painting. More often, I let my subject inform the colors. And generally I choose to paint an image based on the colors already present. I hardly ever choose to paint an image that does not have amazing […]
