I have been interested in drawing and painting from a very early age, four years old. There are several talented artists in my family; my mother being an inspiration to me as well as an uncle and a cousin. I majored in fine arts in college with an emphasis on print making. I painted with watercolors for many years and just in the last year have been concentrating on acrylic painting. I recently started printing some of my paintings in various sizes. I get my inspiration from nature; painting flowers, scenery, vineyards, feathers and whatever else catches my interest on my daily walks and hikes.
