Artist’s Statement:

“My earliest dream as a child was to become an artist. When I was young, I loved drawing and drew on just about every blank space I could find. Basking in the glory of many sunsets, my father encouraged my dream by teaching me to observe the beauty of nature and to appreciate all the gifts for which I had been given. He taught me how to respect and love nature by showing me newly formed buds of a leaf or how the sunlight dappled the ground,

I have studied with many wonderful teachers over the years and each one has taught me something unique. My life has been enriched through my drawings and paintings and lasting friendships have been forged. I feel there is so much to discover that one never stops growing and learning.”
