ARTIST STATEMENT: I believe that God gives gifts to everyone, it is our decision whether we use them. Creating art is one of the gifts God has blessed me with..... How does one explain the moment of knowing something came together on canvas making it art? It has never ceased to be a joyful journey for me to take the paints, canvas, a new idea and watch them begin to work together and come to life. When painting time stops, the only thing that has any sense of reality is creating art. I hope you take time to browse.
