Art has always been a driving force in my life. I feel lucky to be able to create as well as appreciate. Although my work is varied, I love traditional hand drawing, with colored pencils, but am extremely comfortable and proficient with Digital means as well. I have worked in a retail/marketing art department as well as freelanced for numerous clients ranging from cosmetics to produce to theatre.
