I am a self-taught artist who began experimenting with abstract painting while I was in law school as an outlet to relieve stress and express creativity as a balance to my legal studies. The seed was planted when I was studying abroad in Brussels and went to an open air market where I saw an abstract painting I feel in love with. I couldn't afford it but it inspired me to return home and begin making my own art. Now years later, I still enjoy painting as a stress reliever and creative outlet to my law career and continue to experiment with styles, brushes, and colors but remain inspired by sunsets, landscapes and waterscapes.
