I was lucky to have had a painting teacher at an early age. She told me on the first day, “ If you can draw, you can paint. You just have to learn color.” She opened a door for me – and I walked through. That started a lifelong journey, a journey I’m still on, by the way.
Since an early age my life has centered around art and the drive to create it. I believe the aesthetic experience occurs in a personal moment when the recipient experiences art. I create my paintings for that moment.
Oil paint, watercolor and pencil have always been my choice of media to reflect the world around me.
