My Story

PCCA outside 2A copy.JPG

I am an artist who has been drawing and painting since I was very young. My favorite mediums are acrylic paint, PRISMACOLOR pencils, charcoal, pastels and the creation of digital art. Upon request, via email directly to me, I will consider requests for commission work. I also am an Instructional Designer that can create medical illustrations, online modules, art work, graphs, schematics, etc. for Power Point & Google slides.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resources Development with a specialization in Training & Design. I hold a Masters degree in Education with a major in Instructional Technology. I have also attended Art & Design classes at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI.
