How would you describe your style?
My style is abstract/realism
Who would you say have been influences on your work?
My biggest influence that got me started in drawing is my Grandma Mavis. She started me out with magazine pictures of animals when I was five years old. She noticed that instead of me coloring pictures, I was copying them down on random pieces of paper.
My biggest influence now is Walter Piehl. Ever since I attend Minot State University, his art style has always intrigued me. After my dad passed five years ago, my range of art come down to more Western/ Horse. My dad was a horse trainer when I was younger, and I needed something to get me through his passing. I started painting with more watercolor and it would be images of horses. As the years have gone by, I’ve expanded my art style more.
Are there particular themes you like to explore in your work?
Horses, western, wood work.
What do you most enjoy about the creative process?
The past five years of my art growing, people have noticed and some ask me to do custom drawings for them. Some range from tattoo designs, to painting designs, or even a design to remember a passed loved one. I enjoy seeing the smiling faces of people when I give them their pieces. when I get into working on a pieces, I am in my own world. I love when I can pick up a paintbrush or pencil and work like nothing is around me.
