Personal Statement:
 
In the beginning of my process I enjoy drawing with pencil to render images as realistically as possible, but often let the paint and my imagination mix with my memory to interpret the images in a new way. At other times allowing the paint to make its' own decision. I am continually exploring different approaches to painting as my personal style evolves. I love the process of making art; painting is a form of meditation. When I paint.... I think of nothing else! I paint subjects that resonate with me. It's a wonderful feeling to be able to create as well as having the opportunity to share my work, it evokes genuine feelings of gratitude.
