I make art because I can't stop. It is who I am. Images turn to space and colors and I can't think of anything else until I express how they make me feel. Then I create with paint. 
I work in watermedia. Sometimes my art is more realistic and other times more abstract, but I am always drawn to color and texture and layers. 
   When someone engages with my work, sees beyond the surface and infuses their own meaning into the artwork, it takes on a life of its own- my creation.
