I'm a Richmond-born artist who primarily works in oil paints. I graduated from VCU with a degree in filmmaking (and still use those skills to make short documentary work) but soon after graduation in 2017 I became obsessed with capturing light in a different medium. Oil painting has become a total obsession of mine and I love using paint to record memories from adventures I've been on. I often work in the studio, but I've recently been combining my love of the outdoors with painting by working en plein air as well.
