Art, I believe is spiritual in nature. It gives voice
to my soul, it is healing and therapeutic.
Creative process, enthused by the endless beauty of nature - her flawlessness, yet imperfection - reminds
me of my own journey, Forever developing and unpredictable, yet also miraculous.
I feel a deep emotional connection with flowers; they are my infinite source of inspiration standing as a metaphor for how I feel about life and people.
I paint them to tell stories, evoke memories,
bring joy and to please the senses of the viewer.
