All my life I have been enraptured with art. I am mesmerized by the dance of color and movement on canvas. I find that art and writing are outlets for healing within myself and hopefully for others.

When my grandmother was ill I asked her to prove to me that there was another world beyond our human existence. This was a secret promise between us. Very soon after she passed I developed a passion for painting and it quickly grew more and more intense. I became very aware of creative flow that moved through me as I identified with her ability to get lost in the moment.

I love illustrating, watercolor, chalk, charcoal and acrylic paints. I find that through acrylics I am transcended to another realm. It is here that I share with you my experience.
