My desire to paint and sculpt stems from a basic need to sooth my soul. I draw upon a deep source of inspiration which mostly comes from observing nature, as well as rich life experiences tied to relationships with people, animals, and my environment. Intuitively, I find myself recreating natures's essence in my paintings. I think it’s because of the level of comfort and peace nature brings me. My creative process is emotional, self-fulfilling, educational, and always enlightening.
