Art, I believe is spiritual in nature. It gives voice to my soul,

it is healing and therapeutic. Creative process, enthused by

the endless beauty of nature - her flawlessness,

yet imperfection - reminds me of my own journey,

forever developing and unpredictable, yet also miraculous.

I feel a deep emotional connection with flowers; they are my

infinite source of inspiration standing as a metaphor for how

I feel about life and people. I paint them to tell stories,

evoke memories, bring joy and to please the senses of the viewer.
