My life has been a struggle in learning how to use and share the art that I have see inside. I worked my way through experiences - marriage, children, divorce, death, loss and gain – all providing experiences which have served to shape what exits my brush!

When I paint I feel as though I am sculpting the canvas with the experiences and feelings that are within me. I place the focus on the paint more so than on the subject matter, using a large range of painting styles, capturing images through the use of bold color and interpretations of the world surrounding me. Throughout this whole journey I have come to the realization that my art is a gift that I can share with others.
