I am a self-taught, Pastel and Oil artist currently based in Midwest City, Oklahoma. I have been influenced by the Impressionist Painters of the 19th Century Art Movement, known as Impressionism. I enjoy the depiction of light, thin, small, and broad strokes in my paintings. My style consists of using gradation with bold colors to evoke emotions, atmosphere, and rhythm.
