If I’m not painting, I’m dreaming of my next painting and sketching in my notepad. My head is always filled with a whirlwind of beautiful colors, and I always have paint on me somewhere. From childhood, I knew art was what made me happy. I could truly express my dreams and emotions and create something others always seemed to enjoy. It was the biggest praise I received from all of my teachers throughout school.

I love to use lots of vibrant color. I use many mediums including acrylics, resin, alcohol inks, oils and spray paint, but my predominant medium is Acrylic on canvas and Acrylic and Resin on wood panel.
