About

I live my art! I am only alive with a brush‚ pen or pencil in my hand‚ lost in a world of creation…Self-taught‚ I started full-time 4 years ago‚ I am discovering new and amazing things every day…I draw and paint both animals and humans and love that a line or a stroke can convey an emotion to the viewer. I feel it is such a privilege to have the gift of art…
A world without art is not a world I ever want to be in…

Education

Self-Taught - learning everyday through trial and error...I paint every day...Always learning!
