Title or Location: Everything And Nothing At All
Most of my work revolves around mental health issues (Depression, ADHD) and some sleep-related issues, like sleep paralysis and just plain old nightmares. Sometimes the pieces, like this one, start as stream-of-consciousness explorations of ideas and emotions. This piece started as a sketch for another piece (a graphite one) but for which I ultimately decided to go in a slightly different direction. However, I always wanted to come back to it, and this time I decided to take it up digitall

Title or Location: Resolute Spirit: The Portrait of Harriet Tubman
Born from a realization that many people are unfamiliar with the full extent of Tubman?s legacy, this realistic oil painting aims to shed light on her life and the profound impact she had. Tubman, most celebrated for her role in the Underground Railroad, embodies the very essence of courage and resilience, traits I sought to capture in this portrait.In creating ?Resolute Spirit,? my intention was to offer more than just a visual representation it was to weave the story of Tubman?s bravery a

Title or Location: ?Gratitude?
I am calling gratitude into my life. Time to ?stop and smell the roses.? Time to acknowledge the good before the ?bad?, and to understand that the bad is necessary. Since going to therapy and learning that I?ve been living life in a traumatized body, and that this is not just ?who I am? I?ve been angry. A lot of things done to me were out of my control, as I was a child. I can?t hear loud noises/voices without jumping and experiencing immediate fear. Someone can?t reach out to touch me without

Title or Location: New beginnings
I'm new to oils and painting, I would say my style would be fine art and surrealism, no rules and I can escape, experiment and have fun. I painted this scene as I'd came across a beautiful photo of calla Lilly valley in California, I use the idea but made it my ownwith the colours and changed parts of it, I like the perspective and the enchanting mysterious vibe it gave. Returned to art almost a year ago, still finding my way, but determined, excited and fully motivated to reach my potential,

Title or Location: The Boats at Sunset in Bradenton
I was at The Starfish Restaurant when I captured this view on a cold day in Bradenton Florida from the dock behind the restaurant. I was fascinated by the light coming from one of the boats and the gas pump. The photograph helped me to produce this oil painting when I got home in Ohio.

Title or Location: Vivi
This painting is part of a collection I am working on called the Beautiful Project. The Beautiful Projects lifts up everyday people in our communities doing amazing things. People nominate people in their lives they think are beautiful. Then we sit down and have a discussion about why. They give me a bunch of pictures and I paint the beautiful person and write up a story about what I found that was beautiful about them as I painted. Vivi is beautiful because she never gives up.
