I didn't start painting until my Sophomore year of college when Covid-19 hit. Oil painting had become my safe haven, and now I use it to communicate beauty and emotion.
The rules and technique of oil painting only encouraged my for it, which is why it's my preferred medium. I love to experiment with multiple creative processes, that's part of being an artist. Most of what we do from a day-to-day basis is creative in someway.
Emotion is what I focus on majorly. Feeling or reading emotion doesn't always come naturally to someone, learning to feel and to communicate feelings is like a language in and of itself. Along with emotion, I'm heavily drawn towards figure based Romanticism, Victorian Classism and the Pre Raphaelite era.
