At a very young age I found joy in drawing and painting. Those around me realized my talents and encouraged me. I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the art field. I experimented in every media of painting, drawing, sculpture, etc… and found watercolor to be my medium of choice.
I immediately fell in love with the transparency of paint on paper and it became a natural process for me.
I am very excited about my recent series “Sticks and Stones.” The natural elements depicted in my pieces have a way of bringing the outdoors in.
