I am a passionate Studio Artist based in the United States. I am keen on capturing the details of subjects painted. I paint realism and occasionally do abstract. Each painting or drawing is done with precision and has the utmost care. My favorite subject to paint are portraits. I have completed several commissions since 2011 from murals with a team of artists to individual requests such as of a pet that passed away. I have a minor in Studio Art. I have taken several master level classes at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. I have not been compelled to gain a Master's Degree in Fine Art at this time. I continue to learn new mediums on my own, such as I picked up wood burning last year. I also challenge myself in picking new subjects to paint to gain stronger techniques and experience as an artist.
