I make art because I have to.
The strong pull of art creation has been with me all of my life.
Creative process fills me with a sense of awe and wonder.
What I create depends on my mood and what goes on around me.
Sometimes I draw inspiration from places I’ve visited or subjects that affect me.
Other times I allow creative energy to take me to surprising places.
I enjoy multiple formats and media, creating on location and in my studio.
My goal is to follow my heart and soul and keep on creating.
