I was born with a happy heart. I like to think that my paintings reflect that. To me, art is a love affair with life, and I am transported to a timeless space when I have a pencil, pen or brush in my hand. 

I am fascinated by the beauty and rich diversity of life. The thrill for me in creating art is in capturing spirit; the elusive spark that defines the essence of a look, a smile, a place. My hope is that my art will move the heart and lift the spirit of those who experience it.
