I'm just a simple artist trying to spread some joy and tell a story with my paintbrush.
I adore painting in acrylic paints, but drawing has always been my first love. There is just something about the contrast between the black of the ink and white of the paper that makes me happy. I will often combine the pen and ink with a touch of colored pencils. My work has certainly evolved over the years and I find it so much easier to be colorful and humorous with my art, using bold strokes or thick paint.
There is just so much beauty that God has given us in His creation and it is often difficult to decide just what should my next subject to use in my art. This is my journey and with God's help I will strive to honor Him by loving His creation and attempting to capture that beauty with some paint on a canvas.
