I have always enjoyed creating. What started out as crafty projects has evolved into the desire to paint something I would hang in my home. During the process, a close friend of mine offered to let me hang my paintings in her coffee shop. To my surprise, her customers were very complimentary and even started purchasing them. One of my best memories was someone coming up to me and saying "your paintings make me smile".
My training has consisted of taking workshops from local talented artists, some of which I consider friends. To me, it's not just about the painting. It's the journey I am on that opens my life to see and appreciate what is around me, and treasure the friendships I have made along the way.
