About

For the Love of Art

Ever since I can remember, I have spent the majority of my spare time drawing and painting. I continue to nurture and improve my skills everyday and I decided to share it with others.

I started my shop on Etsy to reach a wider audience of people who would love and cherish the art I make, especially the pieces I do only for them. I love to work one-on-one to bring a person's vision to life, to put life into a photo of theirs, to make gifts for their loved ones and more.

Working from photos is something I will always enjoy, because there is a transformation between the photo and the finished piece, making that moment even more special. Drawing or painting is a much more intimate and personal medium than a photograph, and the finished product can say so much more. There is a creative freedom where detail can be added or subtracted. The photograph can become anything you want it to be.
