Signature Piece "Love"

It is a comment on love and the significant unspoken connection that is held between kindred souls. It speaks to synergy and the concept of being in love. It has a focus on the metaphysical connection of people along with the energy exchange.

If you look closely you will see the two silhouetted figures are partially in the heart. This symbolism illustrates how the piece is intended to focus on things that may matter when you are in love.

Maya Angelou

Process Painting

Outside of my immediate family one large influence for me is Maya Angelou. I feel as though we have many aligning values. I appreciated so much of her legacy. This portrait process video I did featuring her words I feel will give you a more in-depth idea as to why she is an important influence.

I’m convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. - #MayaAngelou #portrait #study of the Queen #motivation #goals #decorpainting #artdecor painter
