Painting has become a medium through which I can express and communicate aspects of myself that might otherwise lie dormant.
    My paintings are infused with my soul.  Each painting is a journey.  It may start with an inspiration from nature, life experience, or emotion that is surfacing.  As I work with the canvas I develop a multi-layered relationship with it.  The piece evolves as the journey continues and so do I.
    Painting is a very centering experience for me.  When a piece is finished I feel a sense of freedom, contentment, and satisfaction.  Expressing myself in this way has spilled over into other areas of my life instilling them with the creative spark and leaving me a more whole human being.
