I am a completely self-taught artist who discovered my passion after the first time that I touched paint to a canvas. What started out as a hobby to fill time, quickly because my refuge. When I am painting, I can get lost for days at a time while the stresses of life simply melt away.
I am attracted to subjects that convey an emotion which is why I gravitate to the human spirit. I am fascinated by the fact that one viewer's interpretation can be vastly different from another's and even from my own. My desire is to create something beautiful, no matter what the subject or emotion conveys. Beauty sometimes comes in unexpected ways; sometimes in loneliness or pain.
"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." ~ Thomas Merton
