Description My awareness of art began as a very young child at my mothers dining room table. There were five of us children at the time and my mother provided us with crayons, paper, scissors, Elmers glue, and coloring books and cut out doll books. Thus my enthusiasm to create began. My interest in art stems to all media of creating whether it be painting, drawing, ceramics, 3D design, or making a mandala on the beach as well as being a Pastry chef. I usually paint portraits or pictures that provoke or make you respond to it. It is the fulfillment of starting a project and breathing life into it and the satisfaction comes from your connection to source energy or God that makes you feel alive and loving the moment to create something out of your being.
