"I breathe to create Art. Art sustains my life.  My work is unique.  My style is individual.  Creating figurative, abstract, mixed media pieces that dance with textures of soft and vibrant hues.  I invite you to enter my world where creativity is unihibited and unstructured and the creative process is an imaginative, intuitive journey.  Each piece embodies a piece of my heart and when it speaks to your heart my creative process is complete."
