Artist Statement -The desire to create art has been a part of me for as long as I can remember. My natural surroundings and tropical travels are my constant inspiration. Born and raised in Florida, I have long enjoyed the beauty this area affords. I find the ocean beaches to be some of my favorite places. Although I have worked in almost every medium, I now favor water-based mixed media. I enjoy painting every day and giving back. Hope you enjoy my work!
