I am primarily a watercolor/oil based artist however i experiment with gouache and acrylics time to time to build skills and challenge my own creativity. My signature works vary from galaxies to starry nights. I am also a therapeutic art coach and conduct pattern workshops and indulge in color therapy to help relieve stress and manifest dreams ! My goal is to spread my knowledge and like CassArt says - " Let's fill this town with artists !!!"

Watercolor galaxies took Instagram by storm when this style of cosmic art was introduced. The style saw many variations including milky way, spiral galaxies, nebulas, and northern lights with landscapes. The transparent nature of watercolors makes them more appealing than any other medium because galaxies need layering of colors while still retaining hue from the bottom layers.  The style was charming because it was quite out of the world! We will be painting a traditional milky way galaxy with stars and a mountain to create a magical piece of work!
