Painting is just another way of keeping a diary. - Pablo Picasso
I believe the act of creating can empower, heal and elevate each one of us. Picking up a brush and painting is an act of prayer and meditation for me. It calms and connects me and allows me to use my gift to lift someone up, brighten a corner, and bring a little color to someone's world.
My art comes from a longing to share and celebrate the beauty and power in the every day gifts of life. The human spirit found in a face, a landscape that brings back childhood memories, a sunlit flower that elicits joy. My art comes from the ache of emotion that I can only convey through painting.
