My inspiration to paint evolved early in childhood and has forever been in my heart and soul.  With the opportunity to live abroad in Mexico and Indonesia and travel the world my horizons were  broadened. It was thrilling to  study and experience the light, colour and the atmosphere in different countries.  The ability  to see beyond my world was invaluable. With all of the exposure to so many art forms I constantly re-invent my colour palette and the studies that I create.  To explore so many subjects and create new and exciting paintings is what keeps me exhilarated about every day in my studio.

"My  painting method is traditional application.  It is enhanced with layering to create texture.  When needed, mediums for a painting will be added.  I use brushes, a palette knife and my hands to work with mixed media and oil paint. The work is impressionism with hints of semi-abstract. I use bold brush strokes and put all the emotion I have to give behind each stroke.  I love painting and paint almost every single day.
Life for me, has been a long and often difficult journey to be a painter. I am dedicated and grateful to be artist and feel it is my calling."
