Creative thinking brought me into the field of fine arts. Throughout my life I have always been a hands on learner and fine arts is the subject that I was most passionate about. Taking the path that I did, I have found that the freedom associated with art is what makes it so powerful and compelling. Creating something unique from simple materials with my own hands is what I love most. Whether it be a brush stroke or a finger print, the art that I create will always be a part of me. I have also found great joy in observing how art changes with culture through my previous travel experiences. There is an enormous amount of information incorporated into works of art, and each piece can teach us about the people and the world surrounding us.
