I'm an artist living in my hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. Although I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, I have called Las Vegas home since the age of 8.
Art has always been my passion but I was encouraged to pursue another career path growing up. While art remained my first love, I ultimately obtained degrees in engineering, business administration and finance.
After turning to art therapy in 2017 to overcome a loss, I rediscovered my passion for painting. Then committed myself to my childhood dream - becoming an artist.
I've exhibited artwork January 2018 until June 2019 in AW Gallery in The Arts Factory (in downtown Las Vegas). My artwork has been exhibited in the New Orleans Art Association 2018 Art show in New Orleans, Louisiana and the 2018 Sugar Rush Art Festival in Sugarhill, Georgia.
I'm also a proud member of the Las Vegas and Boulder City Artist Guilds. I enjoy participating in art competitions and expos hosted by both guilds and other organizations across the US (and abroad).
In July 2019, I opened Queen of Arts Studio and Gallery!! It houses my working studio and gallery showroom of all of my available artwork.
Pet and wildlife portraits are my passion! There is something special about capturing the character of each beloved pet for their adoring owner to cherish or the majestic beauty of wildlife creatures. I lovingly paint these portraits and am truly honored when my clients choose me. My style is realistic but I prefer to keep the charming painterly look to each portrait. Acrylics and oils are my mediums of choice.
