I am an emerging artist that started out with acrylic paintings about a year ago at a local class to relieve stress and decided to take the leap on my own to try working with oils at home. I enjoyed art as a teenager but life kept getting too busy and it was put on the back burner up until now. I pulled a lot of inspiration from Bob Ross as my mom was a huge fan and watched his show growing up. I followed his videos to learn basic techniques to get me started and some of my favorite pieces came from watching him. I have found that nature and creating landscapes and seascapes are the style that fits me best and even though I have only been working oils for less than a year, I'm more motivated than ever by my continued progress and improvement with each new piece!
