I was an artist by heart at a very young age. I had a wonderful and kind grandmother, who was a very talented artist, and encouraged me as a child to pursue and follow my dreams. She always had a never ending supply of paper, paint and pencils waiting for me when I visited her. All my life I have loved art, and have been fascinated by the many forms and ways it presents itself to the world. My art provides me with the freedom of expression, and an inner vision into my world of mystical people, creatures and things. I hope that my work brings lots of enjoyment to others...because I have received much joy creating it.
