Abstract: Metallic, vibrant, sparkly abstract works in acrylic- often containing words and iconic imagery.  These pieces are about my personal spiritual pathway whether I'm taken down a path with music, something I've read, or a trend/movement happening in the world around me.  

Illustration: I enjoy illustrating in acrylic and digitally.  Illustration is the best way for me to demonstrate a specific/editorial ideas because I can use character expressions to bring a message across. 

Landscape: Lush environments painted in oil.  These paintings are about celebrating nature.  I usually paint from photos I've taken while on vacation or around my neighborhood in the Oakland Hills.  The underlying message of these works is about coming to nature as yourself and becoming a steward of your environment.
