|I have a varied background in drawing and painting, historical costuming, special effects make-up, jewelry, and performance art. I choose traditional and non-traditional materials to juxtapose into my creations with varied textures and forms. My portfolio is made up of the creative facets of myself, so the artwork is an eclectic collection of the different ways that my mind works, and a visual collection to convey the creativity that I offer.|
