'In my paintings I strive to capture the spark that ignited in me to tell its story.
My mediums of choice are Watercolor with its flowing and transparent capability and Acrylic which has similar qualities and allows for flexibility and exploration.
I try to express the beauty I see and feel and hope to touch people with my work like the artists, whose paintings inspired me.'
