"Sketching is an immediate action that reveals an artist’s state of mind at a specific time and place. Depending on this state, sketched images may be frantic in nature or calm and collected. I compose sketches from multiple sources in an attempt to create a unified expression of an environment. My sketches frequently document a progression into abstraction where the depiction of specific objects becomes less and less important.
I grew up in a transient household and currently reside in Vienna Va. My art training began in 2005 at Virginia Commonwealth University where I studied painting and printmaking. I take a non-academic approach to drawing and became interested in “urban sketching” while studying abroad in Florence Italy. I also have a business degree from The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg Va.
It is great to be part of a group of like minded artists with such diverse styles. I am excited for the opportunity to learn from each other and further explore Washington DC. All of my sketches are for sale and for more information contact email@example.com"
