When I paint I channel all my emotions through my art. No matter how I feel when I begin, I’m filled with serenity and joy during the act of creation. I want to share that peace with the viewer as they experience my paintings.

I paint because for me art is air and creating it feels like waking up. It is Joy and Life and a gift beyond measure. The colors and fragility of flowers sing to me, the sunlight on the petals fill me with delight, the way flowers have patterns and textures that change in a moment fascinate and inspire me.  

I read once that Einstein said art inspired and refreshed him and I take comfort in that thought. I may not be able to change the world with my art but maybe I will give rest and encouragement to someone who can.
